Barbara Hume is a women’s fashion designer and an independent fiber artist based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Her signature hand woven jackets and classically inspired feminine styles speak with conviction: unaffected, versatile and elegant.
In addition to her luxe handwoven fabrics, Barbara’s passions include utilizing classic, sustainable, repurposed and responsibly sourced textiles and local resources to channel her ideas of modern femininity. Vintage and heirloom pieces, narrow goods, laces, and ribbons are joined to shape the body. Couture techniques are executed with impeccable stitching. Surface embellishments such as dying, stamping, and painting add depth to the piece and fiber accents like fringe, knitting and knotting are the perfect finish. The magic is in the details and subtle nuances in design that ensure the clothing’s unique quality.
Barbara’s bamboo/rayon Lounge and Yoga fleece line was created for the evolved woman of today; her yogic practice, carefree comfort, and moving fluidly throughout her life, grounded and harmonious.
Barbara infuses her designs with unique sparks of inspiration to empower women of a certain age to truly embody the beauty and joy that exists in each phase of her life. Enduring the trends with distinction and individuality Hume and Body will tell your personal story.
The clothing retails from her studio in North Asheville via trunk shows and personal appointments. Purchases are available through the web site as well.
