Dain Daller is an artist and weavers who lives and works in an Earthship that he and his partner built in Northern New Mexico.
Their sustainable home houses three looms. Both weave under solar power, living completely off the grid, and wash their hand-woven, hand-dyed goods with rainwater collected off the roof.
Dain is always looking for new techniques and combinations.
He takes raw materials of silk, cotton, linen, wool, rayon, and transforms them into beautiful weavings and felted tapestries. www.WarpZoneWeaving.com
