Hand woven fiber art from upstate New York. I have been blown away by the talented Alison Altafi and her beautiful artwork as I have been stalking her on social media for a while now.

She is restocking her shop on Saturday November 28th! and is offering FREE SHIPPING!

Shop her work here.



Alison the creative behind plenty of yellow, is from a small town outside of Baltimore where she lives with her husband and six adopted animals -- four cats and two dogs, both of which are oddly cat-like. With a history of being interested in numerous art forms, she finally found herself as a painter and maker. Her work is moody, from snarky to supporting mental health, there' s something for everyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Alison this year, and am so thankful. She is the artist who created our Mental Illness is Not A Crime Sticker <3 This keychain has gotten me through some pretty tough days, I absolutely love it. But honestly she is so talented and has amazing work. I can guarantee you that she will have a piece of work that you will fall in love with!
