Meet the Maker Kimberly Dorris, the founder and designer of KD Weave in Houston, TX.
In 2017 while stuck inside during Hurricane Harvey, Kimberly spent hours at her loom. In that creative space, she dreamt of what would become KD Weave. A line of handwoven wash clothes, hand towels, bath towels, placemats, napkins, coasters, blankets and pillows.
From a young age, Kimberly Dorris felt at home creating with her hands. This is a passion she likely inherited from her artistic, southern, maternal and paternal grandmothers. As an adult her passion for creating with her hands grew into something more, when her husband gave her a Schacht Cricket Loom. She began weaving everything from caftans to home goods.
Today Kimberly is the designer and mastermind of KD Weave. She works with refugee women, in her Houston community, to create textiles for the home. She is proud of her brand and its commitment to providing opportunities for hardworking women from The Karenni State (between Burma and Thailand).
Whether you’re sharing a meal, choosing a gift for a friend, or just cleaning the house, Kimberly hopes you feel love and a deep comforting sense of home through her products.
The Dowry is excited to share KD Weave with you!
