Our Mission and Philosophy

SAORI Arts NYC, a nonprofit organization, encourages people of all ages who experience life-limiting conditions to discover the joy of free-style weaving. A break from traditional weaving, our approach nurtures self-confidence and individual creativity.

SAORI weaving is calming, focuses attention, and appeals to the senses. Weavers work with fibers of many colors and textures, creating intuitive beauty and finding satisfaction in their work. Pieces they make include wall hangings, purses, scarves, and pillows.
