Just below street level on Union Street in Newton Centre sits Dahlia, a clothing and accessories store that someone might miss if they weren’t looking for it. Once inside, visitors are enveloped by a kind of soft, multi-colored cocoon of fabrics and yarns forming what could rightly be called wearable art. This is the world of Dahlia Popovits, weaver and clothing designer, artist and artisan, mother and businesswoman.
Dahlia is full of handmade and hand-dyed silk scarves from textile artists across the United States, displayed alongside multi-colored hand woven vests and jackets designed and made by Popovits herself in the production studio behind the showroom. The natural fiber fabrics include rayon, bamboo, and cotton/bamboo blends. We can’t wait to have you stop by for a visit!
Dahlia’s handwoven clothing can also be seen at some of the top craft shows around the country. Please check the Show Events page to see where we will be next.
