Julia Masci Textiles

Julia Masci- Textile Artist.

Born in 1979 in Toronto Canada, first generation Canadian, I grew up surrounded by women in her family making beautiful functional works of art. Learning embroidery and other needle work at a young age, I have always been fascinated with the creative process. As a young adult I began using plants to dye my own fabrics which I would then sew into various items. Using ethically foraged, sourced or home grown plants to use as dye, I create unique, ecofriendly,  long lasting pieces of art, meant to be used in the everyday, paying homage to the women who passed down the knowledge of slow textile art.  

Everything I create begins with raw materials, hemp and organic cotton fabric, cotton cord, which I then dye in small batches using ethically  foraged or ethically purchased plants. From these raw material I creat,  Yoga & meditation props, to support your practice,  Baskets & vessels, to hold any thing your heart desires, and little bundles of carefully dyed fabrics for you to create with.. 

Choosing to work with plants as dyes seemed to be a natural progression.  Working with plants as dyes is always a surprising joy. They offer different colours depending on the time of year, the water, the temperature. So many variables, Its always new. With the plants I have found my home, my art, a mindful space.  It combines all the things that bring me joy.
