Welcome to Clara’s Loom…the destination for textile lovers on the Alabama Gulf Coast.

Clara’s Loom is a gallery of handwoven shawls, textile accessories, travel looms and designer yarn. It is the retail division of the Coastal Textile Center and the label of Alabama fiber artist Celia Dionne.


Add texture to your life!

I choose vivid colors and unique yarns to create one of a kind handwoven shawls on triangle frame looms where I place every yarn manually. These casual but sophisticated wraps are very useful when traveling. Later I create string scarves and other textile accessories with the excess yarn as a sustainable studio practice.

Come browse the gallery of shawls and yarn. It will please your eye and hand.
