Now that Winter is over - or at least supposed to be…looking at you 55-degree highs in April - nature is coming back to life. Flowers are blooming. Trees are sprouting leaves and the grass is turning bright green. Nature is unarguably beautiful. 

On this episode guest, Nadene Mairesse of Idyllwilde talks about gathering nature's beauty to create natural dyes for the clothing she designs. But, nature is more than just beautiful. It’s useful. Mairesse informs us about the ins and outs of using nature to create beautifully dyed fabrics, why she chose natural dyes over chemical dyes, her experiences while foraging and how you can also learn to make natural dyes. 

Plus learn what a Purpura snail is and what color ink can be made from its milk.

The Who’s that lady (from history)? is La Lupe, aka the Latin Queen of Soul. 

For Listen Here Allison highlights This Podcast Will Kill You.
