Born and raised in Mystic, Connecticut, Arianna Funk moved to Sweden right after earning her Master's in Visual Culture at NYU in 2011. She lives in Stockholm with her sons, Axel and Bror, and her partner Erik. When not weaving, she can be found cycling around the city, sailing their wooden boat, and busy experimenting in the kitchen. She's a small business owner, with a focus on handwoven goods and writing weaving drafts and she also designs patterns for Gist Yarn and Vävmagasinet, the Scandinavian Weaving Magazine.
Miriam Parkman is originally from a small town in Northern Sweden but nowadays is based in Stockholm. She studied weaving and needlework at Handarbetets Vänner, Friends of Handicraft School 2013-2016. And after graduating spent three months as a design intern at MZ Fairtrade in Oaxaca, Mexico. She runs her company as a freelance textile artist, handweaver, designer, author, content creator, and (sometimes) a vintage stylist. As a textile designer and handweaver, she sees the warp as her paper and the weft as her brush and paint.
