Joanne Tallarovic and Kathee Houser teamed together as weaver and fabric designer and creative clothing designer to create pieces that are truly remarkable.

Marina O’Connor discusses adapting the “Six-Squares Origami Tops” from the March/April 1995 issue of Handwoven to fit multiple styles depending on preference. Learn what happens when professional weavers collaborate with fashion design students, plus get the chance to recreate the fashions they made.
