Why Ebb & Thread?

Ebb is one of my favorite words. It means: "the movement of the tide out to the sea". I attended college on the North Shore of Oahu. I found so much peace in watching and listening to the ebb and flow of the ocean during some of my hardest times while living there. There is something about the ocean that is healing! I knew I wanted to use the word “ebb” in my shop name. Ebb & Thread came about when I started making pillows out of mud cloth I was amazed at the detail that is in each and every thread in the fabric. It is handwoven and you can actually see the fibers from the plants in each of the threads. Each of those threads tells a story of where it’s from and the person in Africa that handmade it.
