Carefully curated by the amazing Steve Cordony, both scenes embrace the nature of wool within the home.

FEATURE INTERVIEWS

CrossingThreads_PR__0000_1.jpg

"It all started with a birthday gift of a weaving workshop in 2015. Now sisters Lauren and Kass Hernandez of Crossing Threads have become prolific fiber artists. Both on completely different full time career paths, the ‘weaver-fever’ they have both experienced has joined them in a new collaborative and fulfilling path....."

"Looking at their impressive work, it’s hard to believe Sydney sisters Lauren and Kassandra Hernandez, otherwise known as Crossing Threads, only started weaving last year! Inspired by nature, their highly textured wall hangings are created using a variety of upcycled fabrics and yarns including linen, calico, Pima cotton, alpaca wool, cotton roping, sisal roping, bamboo, merino roving and silk...." 

"This week Em sat down with Lauren Hernandez, (below right) one half of creative duo Crossing Threads.   Having only caught the Weaver Fever last year, Crossing Threads was and is built upon a mutual love of nature, weaving and fibre art.  With commissioned wall hangings and weavings for home and commercial environments,  their phenomenal business growth is testament to the power of passion, envisioning a dream and working the Instagram market..."
