Zoë Umholtz 

Hand-dyed Linen Indigo Scarves $60 | $72

New to the Bay area Zoë Umholtz is a graduate of the Oregon College of Art and Craft majoring in Fiber Arts. Since living in Los Gatos Zoë has been inspired by the natural beauty of the mountains and colors of the sky. Her interest in Indigo dyeing has influence her making of utilitarian pieces, concentrating on technique and simplicity of form and beauty. The pattern on Zoë’s linen scarves is achieved by using a method called Shibori. Shibori is the folding and binding of fabric creating an area resisted by indigo dye. This technique allows for a beautifully organic look ensuring that all pieces are similar with subtle nuances. Los Gatos-based Umholtz is a fiber artist and graduate of the Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon. Zoë is also a popular NUMU MakerSpace instructor where she leads indigo-dyeing classes.
