An Artists Retreat at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House with Maye Torres
It is with pride that we present to you this series of artist interviews made at the historic Mabel Dodge Luhan house in Taos, New Mexico.
Maye’s voice is my favorite. She is seasoned, accessible, lovely, light, and deep-- all at the same time. I’ve known Maye for many years, back to the time when osteriavarvamingo’s knitting studio was located in the historic Padre Martinez house, also Maye’s grandmother’s house. Her mother grew up there and Maye was married in the house. osteriavarvamingo actually knit your watchcaps there for a time in 2007-2009. Maye’s son, Zach, used to come play the grand piano in the living room while we knit hats. Imagine!
We were so fortunate to speak with Maye about her identity as an artist, and her amazing new gallery on the Taos plaza, Studio 107B. It is truly the best gallery in Taos and Maye’s work speaks volumes about the depth of a human she is. Her own art is mythical, exploring the power of the feminine and challenging the viewer to look at culture in the light of the ethereal.

SHOP THE WRAP
The ideal cashmere wrap. Warm and light, The Wrap is generous cashmere draped wherever you like. A classic from the moment we finalized its ideal dimensions. Reach for it on summer days and winter nights,—your cover up, your scarf, your dose of gorgeous color.
SHOP THE HIP SKIRT
The life-changing skirt you'll want to wear everyday. Cozy and sexy, the Cashmere Hip Skirt hugs your core and - well, we call it the "butt skirt" for good reason. While this staple is catching on, it's already a cult favorite on the streets of Taos and Santa Fe. Wear it alone, as a cowl, an over-the-shoulder wrap over leggings or jeans - after yoga class, for the board meeting or hiking in the mountains.
