Meghan Shimek

Founder & Weaver for Native TextileSAN ANSELMO, CAPhotography by Lauri LevenfeldStory by Lauri Levenfeld

I look back on my pregnancy as one of my most profound and creative moments. And so, I am in awe and love the fact that Meghan Shimek of Native Textile found her life’s work when her little boy was just a toddler. This was only a year and a half ago, and already Meghan has developed a keen eye for her designs, made a name for herself in a community of artisans and with her fans, and has dedicated herself to sourcing and supporting local farmers and producers. Meghan shares her story, a DIY lesson on Style Me Pretty today, and a giveaway of an amazing weaving just for TMP viewers this week. Contest details posted below. Good luck! xo, TMP

I am Meghan Shimek, a weaver living in San Anselmo, CA. I am originally from Flint, Michigan, and have lived in Washington, DC, San Francisco, CA and Tempe, AZ. I am a mother to my wonderful three-year-old son, Grey. I am a bit of a wanderer and am always seeking out adventure while at the same time I consider myself a homebody. I love traveling, but I often love just staying home and working in my studio.
