I encourage my customers to educate themselves on the products they buy. If you are like me, you put a great deal of care into making purchasing decisions. It is important for me to provide you with excellent products that last and don't impact the earth in a negative way.

Partnership

Handcrafted with love and intention, Metta Weaving is partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, a non profit that plants trees in poverty stricken countries. We work to combat climate change, restore natural eco systems and provide work for the local people in those areas. 20 trees are planted for every order.

Environmentally Safe Materials

Metta Weaving uses sustainable materials such as cotton necklace cord and ethically sourced natural stones. Finding a balance between cruelty free and sustainable is important to me.

Packaging

All orders are gift wrapped in black tissue paper and ready for gifting. I use all paper product when shipping. I do not use plastic! 

About the Artist

Kahlia Chase

My name is Kahlia Chase. I am in my late twenties and I live and work in a skoolie(school bus converted tiny home, it's an ongoing project over the last couple years). I enjoy nature for inspiration and spiritual/physical healing. I love to hike, rock hound, mountain bike, camp, yoga, meditate, craft, grow plants, brew kombucha and practice witchcraft. Anything that involves the outdoors, I am interested.

I started weaving in 2013 and haven't stopped since. My vision is to create meaningful pieces for my customers that reflect my own values. 

Backstory

In my early twenties, I was in a pretty severe auto accident. Months went by and my concussion symptoms and headaches seemed to get worse. After breaking down and seeing a neurologist, I learned that I had a brain disorder. My disorder had become symptomatic from the trauma that my body had been through. I suffered for years, looking for natural remedies like massage, chiropractic, you name it. Surgery was recommended and I could not face that option because it honestly scared me. 

Two years ago, it got to the point where I was in such bad shape that I just didn't want to be me anymore. Dealing with depression, seeing a therapist, not functioning and being able to work, I didn't see anymore options left besides surgery. I finally decided to go back to my neurologist and make the appointment. I was terrified.

I had brain surgery in January of 2018. Ever since then a huge burden has slowly been lifted from my shoulders. With a pain management regimen and a low stress lifestyle, life has gotten a lot better. I can look at life in an optimistic way again and I don't take life for granted. 

Through these passed 6 years, there were periods of time when I couldn't work and weaving was the only thing I felt like I could do. It slowly grew from a hobby into a full time career for me and I don't regret the path that I have taken, no matter how hard it was. It has made me a stronger person.

My Philosophy

The Universe is unbounded energy with pure potential that we can utilize. If we can manage to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, we can see that there is much more at play here.

We must plant the seeds of compassion, patience and understanding inside of our souls. Plant these seeds of wisdom in yourself and reflect inwards. The more we nurture these seeds, the more they grow into light and spread, eventually filling you and intertwining you with the Universe. 

I hope my story has inspired you to never give up on your dreams.
