founded NatureQuest, a leader in active travel for the discerning explorer in 1992. Since then our journeys
have been based upon one simple conviction and one heartfelt mission. We believe that there is an undeniable magic to personally-involving, adventurous, small group expeditions that immerse one
in the treasures of each carefully chosen destination. Our mission steadfastly remains that of encouraging a love and understanding of this planet through responsible travel with truly
intimate, and often spontaneous contact each land and its people.
Loom Dancer Weaving Odysseys is a natural spin-off for NatureQuest focusing on the rich textile traditions of this world full of so many
wonderfully diverse styles of global fiber art to discover and explore. Each year, a handful of journeys
focus on and explore the various fiber arts centers of the world. Created for adventurous fiber arts enthusiasts of all kinds, our odysseys offer the discovery of colorful, culturally rich
destinations combined with an opportunity for hands-on textile experiences in the style and tradition of that country, taught by local masters.
In addition to providing participants with one-on-one experiences with local
textile experts, we also strive to be responsible stewards of the money entrusted to us through participation in our trips. Our
tours offer aid in sustaining worldwide textile populations by funneling a significant amount of this money and support back into these indigenous communities through our tours and
interaction. We invite you to join us for rich tapestry of experiences.
