It was Erin Chow's affinity for colour and pattern that inspired her to launch Haven Textile Company. Driven by the desire to create and a love for aesthetically pleasing interiors Erin found herself naturally drawn to textiles. Using a range of natural plant materials, Erin dyes each piece by hand with a range of binding methods including Shibori. Born and raised in Vancouver, Erin found herself creating from a very young age. Having found herself emotionally tied to aesthetics, it was no surprise that she found a career in Interior Design. With over ten years of experience in the industry Erin made her mark in the industry with publications in Western Living, Style at Home and House and Home. It was while studying with the Maiwa Textile School in Vancouver, Erin’s passion for textiles became evident; Her vision for Haven was seeded and what would soon follow would be a textile and home goods line centered on artisanal one of a kind pieces. With a focus on natural materials and sustainability, Erin incorporates these beliefs into the design process-making them a principal element of Haven Textile Company. She draws inspiration from her love of travel and photography and incorporates these into her designs and visions.
