Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett

A snippet from the KnitRowan website:

Born in San Francisco, Kaffe studied painting at the Museum of Fine Art in Boston USA. Kaffe left the United States after just 3 months at art school and travelled to London in order to paint. He settled there in 1964…

… Kaffe’s love of textiles led him to travel extensively. The international charity Oxfam asked him to work with poverty-stricken weaving villages in India and Guatemala, to advise on designs that would be more marketable in the West. As a result, a range of colourful hand woven fabrics have been produced for use as shirt fabric, bed throws and patchwork fabric. This is available on an international basis through Rowan UK and Westminster Fibres, USA. Other charity work has also taken him to South Africa…

… Kaffe’s current passion and idea of heaven is creating cloth for patchwork, yet he continues to lecture and tutor knitting workshops. His excitement for all his chosen crafts shines through and his company is exhilarating and exciting for knitters and non knitters alike. Kaffe says “being the dinosaur of patchwork and knitting guarantees that people will come and listen to me”.
