So what is fiber art anyway?

 

Since 2019, we’ve been focused on making beautiful works of art that challenge the frameworks of fast fashion and industrialization. We take pride in our products being handmade with care. 

At Treasure Chestnut, we believe that art can be a medium for improving society. By supporting individual artists and small brands, you help divert money from fast fashion, one of the major industries causing environmental destruction.

We’re so glad you asked!

Fiber art refers to fine art that uses natural or synthetic fiber (i.e. yarn, fabric, etc.) as its medium. There are all sorts of possibilities within the world of fiber art!

Historically, embroidery, sewing, and other fiber arts were primarily done by women, leading to the devaluation of this work by society at large. Additionally, increased automation in the fashion industry has revolutionized the ways in which we value clothing.

In the world of fast fashion and mass production, we at Treasure Chestnut believe in the lasting beauty and value of handmade art. Join us in changing the ways we value fiber arts.

Testimonials

Maroon baseball cap with an embroidered cloud.

Check out Camille’s work for the custom embroidery of your dreams!

For years, I wore a maroon baseball cap I got from my university with a giant white ‘F’ on the front because 1) it was free and 2) it was comfy. But I didn’t really feel like walking around with an ‘F’ was ‘my jam’. I mentioned that it would be so cool to replace the ‘F’ with a custom design, perhaps a little white cloud because that’s what my friends call me. That’s when I commissioned Camille’s expert skills to bring my idea to life. They designed and created the perfect hat for me! Now, I get to walk around and rep ~my brand~ and get compliments on it all the time. Camille’s work brings a little extra joy into my everyday!

My custom-embroidered hat from Camille is my favorite thing to wear! The floral design is so pretty, and the variety of stitches and colors make it pop against the black hat. I’ve gotten so many compliments on it, which is a testament to Camille’s care and attention to detail. Definitely support this artist!
