Nest Hand Crafted Textiles by Rachel Craven March 30, 2012 by Shiva Rose Yesterday I had the most wonderful afternoon visiting with the lovely Rachel Craven. Rachel is a former painter who now makes beautiful tablecloths, napkins, place mats, pillows and scarves. Her former experience as an artist and her love of all things natural, have led her to create a lovely line. She is inspired by native motifs and harmonious colors. Soon we will have a webisode here on her process and the visit. I so love the blue colors she uses! Her house and studio are also full of light and in the most charming area of Los Angeles where every house is a Victorian Painted Lady.
