This week on the podcast, I'm talking to Claudia Raessler’s, co-founder of Maine Dye and Textiles. Located in Saco, Maine, Maine Dye and Textiles dyes a wide range of yarn from gorgeous wools for Brooklyn Tweed and other knitting yarn companies, to nylon yarns for more industrial purposes. Claudia does, in fact, happen to be a weaver herself, but the focus of this week’s conversation is on what it’s really like running a commission dye house in the US. For me it was a fascinating window into one critically important part of our textile manufacturing industry, and also a window into a woman-owned small business hustling hard to raise the capital and build the team to bring her vision into the world.
