Ashley Kreisman, an ultimate DIY kind of gal, loves using her hands to create and immediately knew weaving was a craft she needed to learn. Ironically enough, her husband’s family has been making weaving looms since 1973. Their company, called Beka Inc, was born out of a set of brothers and their wives who had a passion for weaving. They were the ultimate hippies, traveling across the country, teaching weaving classes in the seventies. Now that the business has entered into the second generation, Kreisman is helping keep one of their core values alive by continuing to teach the art and craft of weaving. oakeandashe.com
