Arts & DIY
Grab your best gal pal and head over to Renegade Craft Fair CHICAGO. We are making rugs!
Join Argaman&Defiance Designer, Lydia Crespo, at RENEGADE CRAFT FAIR CHICAGO as she guides each maker through the design process of creating a raw silk rug by hand.
The 18" x 18" rug will be yours to take home. All supplies will be provided.
Argaman&Defiance (A&D) creates 100% silk scarves naturally dyed by hand in our studio located in Chicago, Illinois. We only use natural dye extracts responsibly collected from tree bark, roots, and leaves. We then hand paint or print a unique design on each piece.
Lydia Crespo attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) graduating in 2010. She received the James Nelson Raymond Fellowship from SAIC upon graduation. Crespo used the funds from the fellowship to start her business, Argaman&Defiance.
Argaman&Defiance collection is available in over 45 boutiques throughout the US. A&D has designed for Urban Outfitters, West Elm, Target, and Huckberry. Crespo was featured on NBC Chicago and WGN Chicago speaking about about her collection. Most recently Argaman&Defiance was highlighted in Chicago Magazine “Best of Chicago” , Chicago Tribune “16 Things We Love”, and marthastewart.com.
Crespo has created and lead workshops out of her studio for three years.
