About Natural Violet

Natural Violet has been around for about 10 years now. The name comes from "Natural" for the use of natural fibers and "Violet" after my sweet calico kitty. Violet sadly passed away on November 2, 2006. She was the heart and soul of Natural Violet and my hope is her playful spirit will live on in future creations. I have a craft studio in my home in Charlottesville, VA, where I live with my husband, Chris, my son Jonas and my three cats, Simon, Storm and Ginger. 

I am a self taught knitter, sewer and dyer. I love working with bright colors and am especially fond of dyeing both fabric and yarn. Colors in nature inspire me as well as a love for animals. I am now using green materials as much as possible in my products including organic cotton, hemp and recycled fabrics. Everything sold through Natural Violet is handmade by me in my home. I sell my items through my Etsy and at art and craft shows.  Enjoy! Darlene Bruce
