What's In Ten Women Window?

Kara Taub, hand weaver extraordinaire has full attention in our window  
Kara has been an active member with Ten Women for quite a long time.  Her sweaters, scarves, hats and baby sets are sought after by faithful fans who purchase new designs for personal use and gift giving.
I witnessed a customer come in at Christmas one year and purchase a scarf for the 8 women in his office and one for his wife as well.  Made of quality materials and delicious color combinations, these items wear and last forever and never go out of style.  A sure bet gift for most on your list any time of the year.

Kara Taub received her training at the Middlesex University in England. After receiving her degree in Constructed Textiles in 1996 she established her own studio based weaving practice in London, which was then her home. Having moved back her native Los Angeles in November 2002, she continues to develop new ideas in fabric. In addition to producing her own ranges of wearable accessories and fabrics for the home, she undertakes commissions of woven art, ceremonial pieces, and industrial fabrics for private and commercial clients.
She has exhibited internationally including at Indigo in Paris, The Jewish Museum, New Designers, and Decorex in London, and The Whitworth Gallery in Manchester, UK. Her work has received recognition from Country Living magazine and she was a winner of the Liberty "One Off" craft competition sponsored by the UK retailer.
