Nathalie d’Iris is a textile artist of French Ukrainian origin. She creates original knits, garments, and one-of-a-kind prints with Earth-provided ingredients (array of flowers and onion skins among many others). Her fascination with textiles started at the age of eight when she was watching her grandmother knit and sew. It is her grandmother who took her through the seemingly endless museum and nature trips during her family’s travels between Paris and Kiev.
In her works, she uses hypoallergenic natural fibers: cotton, linen, wool, mohair, and silk. Most of the dyes she grows in her organic garden in her now home: Red Bank, NJ.
