I’m Angie, and like you, I love the healing spirit of nature. My love of plants began as a child when my grandmother took my family on a road trip to my father’s birthplace near Little Rock, Arkansas. In an empty lot next to my aunt’s house, she showed me how to identify and forage pokeweed. We had a poke sallet with dinner that night, it was fascinating and delicious, the experience always stayed with me. It planted the seed of endless possibilities with plants.
Feeling the need for more creativity in my life, I began to play with fabrics and dyes. Working with my hands in the summer sun and cool sea air at an old beach cabin, tie-dyeing t-shirts, socks, and scarves brought me to my happy place. Realizing the toxicity of the synthetic dyes to myself and the environment, I began experimenting with plant dyes, and a new fascination was born.
These last few years have been spent rethinking, reviewing and revising the kind of life I want to live, and begin integrating with a sense of purpose. This shop is the result, a labor of love, and I am so excited to share it with you!
Journey with me as I explore re-emerging dye craft methods as I forage local landscapes and seasonal plants from the garden, supporting our need to create through the alchemy of plant dyes and textile design.
