"I've always enjoyed playing around with materials and pushing the limits of the materials I use. "
Fiber artist Kristin Gereau is inspired by unique textures and bold colors. Her urban, yet elegant designs provide wearers with the ability to express themselves in unique and playful ways.
All K.Gereau accessories are created using soft and luxurious fibers such as Merino wool and silk. Each piece is kinit using hand-manipulated techniques on a knitting loom, and then washed to create a unique felted wearable work of art.
After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002 with a degree in Textiles, Kristin Gereau moved to Milwaukee to found K.Gereau Textiles.
