2023 Spring Market
Hi, and welcome to ALBA Fiber Co! My name is Alison Bank and I’m the hands and heart behind ALBA. While I’ve been dabbling in fiber arts my entire life, I first started doing macrame in 2019 after being introduced while doing evaluation research at a local makerspace. Coming from a research background, I try to balance my left-brained, analytic side with my creative, right-brained vision with each piece I make. My work utilizes vibrant colors, mixed textures, and unique techniques to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are more than just decoration. I strive to put the FUN in FUNCTIONAL, with pieces that double as aesthetic AND practical.
ABOUT MY PRODUCTS:
All of my pieces are knotted by hand, made with love, and meant to bring you a smile. You’ll notice that I’m NOT afraid of color and tend to use vibrant combinations of colors in my work because it makes me happy – no boring neutrals here! I prioritize sourcing materials from other women-owned, small businesses, including the 100% cotton cord I use in all my pieces. ALBA Fiber Co. seeks to minimize its environmental footprint by reusing cord remnants for smaller products, such as keychains, rearview mirror charms, tassels, jewelry, etc.
