About the Artist & Her Business
Dahlia Popovits has been weaving creative cloth for 40 years. She designs and hand-weaves all the garments and accessories in her collection.
The tactile aspect of the work also draws her in, as she encourages a visitor to feel the softness of a bamboo jacket. Bamboo has become a popular material for environmentally-conscious clothing designers because of its sustainability. “It’s an incredibly comfortable fiber that wicks away moisture and is comfortable year round.”
Many women who buy Dahlia designs return year after year to add to their collection. As her clients have moved into their retirement years, she has moved away from business attire and toward clothing for special events, travel and leisure.
“The idea is to make clothes that work for my customers' lifestyle... Color, style and comfort are woven into each garment and accessory."
Inspired by fashion, color, texture and nature, her clothing is comfortable, stylish and distinctive, with fans who know it when they see it on other women. “When somebody wears a Dahlia garment to a meeting or function and another woman says, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Dahlia,’ it’s recognized, and that to me feels great.”
