Barbara Zaretsky creates handcrafted decorative textiles for home and wardrobe. Her plant based dyes impart a distinctive earthy palette, yet her motifs veer toward the modern. The unexpected blend of the two influences is a hallmark of her approach, which equally honors graphic geometry and fluid, imprecise edges.
A textile artist and the director of Cloth Fiber Workshop, Barbara is originally from the Chicago area. She studied textile design at Northern Illinois University and the Art Institute of Chicago, and Art History at the University of Illinois, continuing her education at Penland School of Crafts. A member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, Zaretsky was named one of the top five designers in Asheville by Southern Living magazine.
