Gretel began her career in weaving upon moving to New Mexico twenty plus years ago. Our
local expansive landscapes, dramatic skies, and clear, brilliant, unusual light have inspired Gretel in her creations. Using these local influences as well as the weavings of South American countries and Mexico, Gretel has created patterns and color combinations that make her cotton chenille throws famous.
Employing local weavers and seamstresses, Gretel has expanded her work from interior design
products--throws and pillows, to include jackets, coats, and vests. Each garment is individually designed and is a one-of-a-kind creation. You can see examples at her website: www.gretelunderwood.com
