Taking from the past to shape the future. Traditional weave crafts reimagined.
Because every item is hand-made, it also means everything is customizable.
Whatever your style, Craftisan has a product for. Each one unique and made just for you!
I am located in Halifax, Nova Scotia. You can contact me individually for custom orders or purchase directly through my Etsy - www.etsy.com/ca/shop/CraftisanWeaveCo

As every product is designed and made by hand, I produce a number of short run and limited ranges.
I graduated from NSCAD in 2015, and originally I was majoring in ceramics. I took a weaving class, and got completely hooked. I was lucky to buy a large loom from NSCAD and that allowed me to experiment with designs and textiles.
I'm originally from the north of England, and moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2009.
Craftisan started as many start-ups do, by making products for friends and family. I started to make commissions and my NSCAD links allowed me into some really special shows and craft fairs. The feedback I received helped me to start Craftisan, and I am very proud to be a part of the new East Coast artisans.
Each scarf can take over 8 hours to weave. I use local wools, my own designs and finish everything by hand, so every item is unique. Social media has been a great tool to help me expand my network and I have had some business advice from a number of well respected marketing experts.
I don't but I love receiving photo's and links on my Instagram from customers who love my scarves. My latest creation is always my favourite.
I most certainly do. Because it takes me quite a while to set up my Loom, I tend to specialize in a smaller number of designs. Colour is customizable, so is the design and shapes/length. I also produce bespoke items such as blankets, throws and table runners. Email me and I can advise:-)
