[CraftBoston] Lotte Kjaer – Fiber Wearable Booth #221
First up from CraftBoston, from the countryside of Holstebr, Denmark comes the extraordinary works of fiber artist Lotte Kjaer. Lotte was an extreme pleasure to meet with a friendly enthusiasm and warmth that was most contagious. Her whimsical collection of handmade shawls, hats, scarves, jackets and ponchos are one-of-a-kind and unique, tactile and lovely. I wanted to own everything. She even makes handbags. We chatted with Lotte about her life in Denmark, her experience selling her wares in conservative Boston, and her beautiful children that appear in many of the photos and collaged postcards sprinkled throughout her booth. Lotte is the kind of woman that you’d like to clone – there needs to be more people in the world like her. She was very open about herself, her life, honest, caring, enthusiastic about her work (vs. snobby) and was excited to know that we’d mention her here on decor8. I plan to interview her when she’s back in Denmark, so watch for that in the near future! Here is her website and a few snapshots from her booth.
