Varsha Titus resides on the magnificent slopes of Haleakala Crater on the island of Maui. For almost 30 years, overlooking a garden filled with ever-changing blooms, she spends her daytime hours weaving bracelets to the peaceful hum of Upcountry island life. The craft demands the discipline of a quiet, undisturbed mind, as there is no room for error.
Varsha’s designs are dedicated to the intricate art of Nautical Braids, familiarly known among sailors as Fancy Knotting. During the 18th and 19th centuries, sailor’s exploration of rope-knotting resulted in an historic contribution of close to 1,000 fancy knot designs.
