Something the children’s clothing market always seemed to struggle with was “color”. I didn’t like the typical offerings for babies (pink, blue, yellow – the staples of commercial baby clothes) and I wanted to stay true to my roots: ethical, slow fashion. Over the course of 2 years of hunting, I found a source for organic double-gauze fabric (also known as muslin) from a company that takes great pride in paying their overseas employees living wages and investing in the women of their community. I tried a low-water dyeing technique, crucial for our water-depleted area and I discovered that instead of struggling with color, the science of dye came to me almost naturally. My first colors were unstable, but as I learned to control measurements and reproduce blankets consistently, my fascination and offerings grew.
