Above the Fray-Traditional Hilltribe Art - Spouses Josh Hirschstein & Maren Beck venture to the remote hill-tribe regions of Laos and Vietnam to personally select the world's most exquisite hand woven naturally dyed silk, cotton and hemp textiles directly from independent hill-tribe artisans. Our diverse selection of textiles is woven of locally raised material using traditional materials, methods and motifs. Above the Fray passionately supports the artisans and their traditional skills and diverse cultures and we are eager to share our knowledge, pictures and stories as well as the incredible woven art of these peoples. 541-485-9386

Ragged Thistle - It is the work of Ragged Thistle to bring creativity and beauty into the clothing of daily life. Our clothing is a fusion of coastal behemian charm and contemporary function with attention to resource conservation and textile reconstruction. Our designs are made with post consumer clothing components coupled with vintage, as well as new textiles, trims and findings. Great attention to texture, color, and design detail is given to each piece. Due to the nature of the raw materials used, many of our garments are one of a kind while still maintaining overall continuity and design integration. Currently we are exhibiting dresses, skirts, vests, jackets, and pants. All garments are designed, cut, and sewn in our home studio in California.
