River House Quilts + Gifts
River House Quilts + Gifts owner Tona Pearce Myers is a local artisan working in both Novato and Russian River Area. She works mostly in textile arts using eco-printing as her basis. Eco-printing is a technique where plants, leaves and flowers transfer their shapes, color, and marks on fabric and other natural materials. Plant material bundled inside of cloth is steamed or boiled to release the dye found naturally inside the plant, creating a contact print in the shape of the leaf or flower used. The results are exceptional and unpredictable which make them an exciting and unique art form! Tona also works with upcycled cotton to produce one-of-a-kind lap quilts, placemats, and other items.
