RESEARCH

Partnering with farmers, artists, designers, fiber folks, and scientists we are studying soil to soil methods. Starting from the seed or raw material we explore from farm to fabric – then back to farm.

WORKSHOPS

We facilitate hands-on workshops and learning experiences. Learn how to dye with plants, flowers, and food waste, or weave, felt, and mend with us in our studio or at one of our partner locations.

GARMENTS

Working with natural dyes, we craft modern heirlooms made with local wool and repurposed materials. All of our pieces are one of a kind and embrace the beauty inherent in the handmade. 

More and more people understand farm to table when it comes to their food, we explore from farm to fabric, and share our research through our workbook series.

We facilitate hands-on workshops for you, your team, or your class that explore closed-loop textile creation. Topics range from natural dyeing with food waste, locally foraged materials, and indigo – to felting, weaving, and repurposing. 

 
 

Honoring the people, plants, and animals behind each garment.

 

Happy sheep, alpacas, goats, and bunnies produce happy fiber. Creating a system based on empathy, all the farmers we work with firmly believe we need to support the hands behind our products as well as the soil, plants, and animals. We hand forage, give a second life, or carefully source when gathering plants for pigment. Working with compostable and biodegradable materials we stay away from synthetic "alternatives" that pollute the ocean in the washing and production process – we keep it natural.
