An idea unfolds

Twofold was created by Jessica Warner to channel her passion for distinctive textiles and showcase the designers she’s discovered in her life and through her travels. Jessica launched Twofold in 2013 with her first group textile tour to Japan and an online store selling products from international textile designers.

Jessica grew up in Canberra, Australia’s capital. After graduating from the Australian National University, she moved to New York, where she worked for the Guggenheim Museum and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. She also nurtured her longstanding interest in textiles with classes in surface design and weaving at the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 2007, she moved to Asia with her family, spending time in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Sydney before returning to the U.S. and settling in Boulder, Colorado.

Innovative style, old techniques: what's in a name?

Twofold seeks out designers who stand out for their inventive designs and old-world craftsmanship. "Twofold" embraces dichotomies like traditional/contemporary, style/substance, local/global, functional/beautiful.

What to expect from our small-group tours

Our goal is to provide an intimate, immersive, hands-on travel experience that connects travelers to new places through the lens of textiles, craft and design. Our tours focus on workshops and studio visits with local designers and artisans; shopping for locally-made artisanal products; and other cultural experiences. We also include some general guided sightseeing, although this is not always our main focus.

If you want to see Japan or India in a personal, meaningful way that is filled with just the right amount of activities and experiences, don’t miss this opportunity. Small groups with a talented, knowledgeable woman whom you will love and appreciate for her attention to detail. I’ve travelled extensively in my lifetime and these trips have been the most organized I’ve been on yet.
