Meet this week’s guest, Meghan Navoy, Founder of Rosemarine Textiles.
What to know
Rosemarine Textiles is a sustainable textile studio based in Detroit, Michigan run by Meghan Navoy. From handmade silk ribbons to table runners and napkins, Rosemarine uses the rich, complex colors of plant based dyes. Each piece is mindfully made by hand with processes that take many days to achieve the perfect color. Meghan is passionate about creating beautiful textile pieces as sustainably as possible, utilizing what would otherwise be waste material, like finds in the compost pile or using day-old blooms from a local florist for dyes, or recycling water to water my garden. With Rosemarine Textiles you’ll find only natural fibers, such as silks, linens, cottons and hemps.
An alum of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, she has a BS in textile development and co-founded the FIT rooftop natural dye garden to explore her love of botanical color. She continues learning and experimenting every day, using textiles as a way to express nature in the home, for eco-friendly weddings and at special events.
Resource of the Week
Let My People Go Surfing by Yvon Chouinard: The popular memoir of Patagonia’s founder tells the inspiring story of one brand’s quest to do business differently. Meghan says this is a great book for anyone aiming to run an ethical and sustainable business.
