Woven and textile art and oil paintings

While traveling in Morocco I was inspired by its ancient textile traditions. I learned to sew while there and have since taught myself to weave on a variety of looms, some custom made. My works are sold as wall hangings, blankets, rugs, or made-to-order commissions. All are composed of natural fibers. On my site I also sell handmade Moroccan goods including textile, leather, and ceramics sourced from responsible organizations.

Soft sculpture toys, accessories, art

Fiber artist Cindy Bensey creates eco-friendly toys, accessories, and art using thrifted and repurposed sweaters, buttons and fabrics, as well as found branches and other bits of nature. From smiling stuffed kitties to felted wool cat pins, from ravens and owls perched on branches to catnip-filled kittens and more, every creation is handmade from her original design -- and designed to make people smile!
