Happy Spring! I’m sure most of you are looking forward to spring after this long winter. I just got back from Peru and have been working on a lot of new products. We are changing from our old style Intarsia that was done in 40% alpaca/20% wool and 40% acrylic to our new machine Intarsia made in 100% alpaca. The new Intarsia is much softer and we are doing the patterns utilizing up to 9 colors. I’ve also done some new silhouettes in the newer Intarsia styles.

Socks and more socks, it seems I can’t design enough and I thoroughly enjoy designing socks. I work directly with a sock engineer in Peru so that my designs can be interpreted correctly into the knitting machine. With our Jacquard patterned socks we use up to 6 colors; this means some threads on the inside of the sock so that we can get all of this beautiful detail on the outside. You will be more than happy to pull up your pant leg for these socks! In fact at the shows in January thru March we had several of our customers pull up their pants leg to show off that they were wearing our socks. We will also have hats to match some of our top selling socks in the June – August markets.

About Us

 

was founded in 2001 with a vision to create unique handcrafted clothing and accessories for women. The name Tey-Art denotes Textiles and Artistry. The key components of that vision was a commitment to natural, sustainable fibers such as alpaca, wool and cotton and to work only with factories and co-ops that subscribe to the principles of Fair Trade Labor. Tey-Art has become a company recognized for its vibrant, textural collections of finely crafted women's sweaters, hats, scarves, mittens, socks, handbags and belts. Working with the skilled artisans of Peru, many of whom are located high in the Andes mountains, has been an emotionally rewarding journey that we hope to continue for a long time.
