Episode 90: Exploring From Farm to Fabric with Nica Rabinowitz of Fiberhouse Collective

by LaChaun Moore

Can you believe this is the 90th episode of the podcast!? In honor of Thanksgiving this past week, I would like to thank you all for tuning in weekly and for supporting us, we appreciate you! 

This week on the podcast I'm speaking with Nica Rabinowitz of Fiberhouse Collective. Fiberhouse is a collective that partners with farmers, artists, designers, fiber folks, and scientists to explore from farm to fabric and then back to farm. They have a number of interesting research projects such as dyeing fibers with mushrooms and extracting pigment from plants and food waste as well as de-composting textile waste. Comment below to keep the conversation going!
