MINNA is the Brooklyn based textile studio created by Sara Berks. The name MINNA was the middle name of Sara’s maternal grandmother. The term MINNA was a common name for maids of that era. Upon arrival to America in 1940, the middle name was dropped. Using simple frame looms and various types of fibers to weave one-of-a-kind textiles and art-projects, MINNA blends contemporary aesthetic with nostalgic practices.
