see what people are saying about catherine coloney textiles. a few
thoughts from lovely customers.
have a question? here are the answers to some FAQ's about my work.
"I have been in love with Catherine's sweater & coat creations since I first saw them 20 yrs ago. Wearing these art pieces.......long, short, classic, whimsical....is fun and they bring a smile to the many people with whom you interact throughout your day. The most amazing thing is the sorting process. Every time you see a rack of Catherine's new designs and you begin to visually sort through the colors, textures, patterns and shapes....the ONE that is yours appears....and you know it was always meant for you. Thank you, Catherine....I am so glad our paths continue to intersect!"
"I never fail to get compliments on my Catherine Coloney textiles. Whether it is a wool sweater creation or her distinctive linens, the unique designs stand out. I love sharing an artist's work and promoting such creative style!"
"Your textiles are beautiful! I Love my cashmere scarf. It's my go to accessory".
"I have been buying beautiful and durable sweaters from Catherine Coloney for about 15 years. I make a special effort to go to her shows almost yearly at the “Art on the Avenue” in Alexandria, VA. She is as special as her textiles. She is a true artist and lovely person. I usually go to buy one of her unique sweaters, scarfs, or wraps for Christmas presents but almost always end up buying one for myself. I keep telling myself I don’t need another one but every year they are different and so lovely that I give in. I also have 2 of her blankets that are gorgeous and very warm. My only complaint, if you can call it one, is that people often stop and ask me if I made the sweater myself and I only wish I could say YES. She has a true gift".
"I receive so many compliments every time I wear my coat. It is my absolutely, hands down favorite piece of clothing!"
"I simply love my Catherine Coloney cape. Her work is really impressive.I always receive compliments when I wear it!".
wherever i can. i'm always looking. on the remnants table, in fabric shops, blankets, rummage sales & thrift stores. you would be amazed what people give away. love donations when anyone wants to purge. as long as it's 100% wool or cashmere, i can breath new life into it.
every piece of artwork is created in a very fluid, organic way. i use the colors & materials from my studio gathered from years of collecting. images locked up in my head flow from vision to machine at a rapid pace.
i sell my work at SW7 in kensington, maryland & at craft and design shows. check my events page for details of the upcoming winter season . follow me on instagram to view current work coming out of the studio.
they are not sized in the traditional sense. i encourage clients to try on the garments that speak to them to experience the energy sewn into the fabric. if the perfect fit can't be found, customers return until they find the piece made just for them.
dry cleaning is recommended.
