Completely in love with my beautiful Manitoba wall hanging from Riel Finishings! It is the perfect piece to remind me of home as a Manitoban living in the US and I could not be happier with the quality of craftsmanship as well as how lovely the lady behind the loom was to speak with when putting my order through. Highly recommend- you will not be disappointed.
Working with Rebecca was wonderful. I came across her original Manitoba work on Instagram. I emailed her inquiring about the possibility of doing 2 large pieces and if she would customize a US state for me. She happily complied and we worked together to find the right colors and textures. She checked in to make sure I loved it during the process- which was really nice. I’m beyond thrilled with my pieces and have already had people here in the United States asking about where I got them!
My experience with Rebecca was short but very sweet. From my initial love of her Manitoba weaving piece in my friend’s office, to placing my order and picking it up; it was only a week and a half process. I knew exactly what I wanted going into my custom piece and Rebecca made me feel uber excited through her Instagram stories of the weaving process. I absolutely love my Manitoba-made piece which hangs proudly in my living room. The result of what I ordered greatly exceeded my expectations - looking at it simply isn’t enough, you have to feel the texture of her work to truly appreciate it. I am in the process of ordering my second piece and have recommended this talented artist to friends and family, as I love to support local.
Winnipeg has so many talented artisans and Rebecca is one of them! My experience creating a custom project was a dream from start to finish. She took the time to send me photos of the piece in progress to ensure it was exactly what I wanted and had it completed in record time. I’ve since had a second project done for my daughter and am planning a third piece to hang in my shop! The quality of her work, her creativity and her enthusiasm for making custom pieces made it a joy to work with her.
