The Fono Arts and Crafts

About Vera’s work: “I design and weave polished, high quality textiles for wearing and for the home. I take inspiration from the colors of nature and the man-made environment, and translate those ideas to beautiful, durable, useful objects made from natural fibers. I am dedicated to the value of skillfully handcrafted, unique things and to helping everyone discover the beauty of slow cloth.”

Vera, founder and lead artist of The Fono, is a textile artist who weaves, spins, dyes, and felts. Her passion is to share the life-altering magic of discovering new materials and figuring out how they can make unexpected things. In her free time she helps with projects of the youngest artists and inventors.
