Episode 33: Natural Dyes with Kathy Hattori of Botanical Colors
This week on the podcast, I’m talking to Kathy Hattori the founder of Botanical Colors. Botanical colors supplies artisans and the textile industry with the materials and knowledge to dye textiles in a way that uses less water, is non-toxic and bio-degradable. They sell beautiful high-quality natural dyes for weavers and makers. Kathy and I had a lovely and wide-reaching conversation about why she’s so passionate about natural dyes, how she thinks about ethics and sustainability in sourcing, her tips for weavers who want to try out dyeing for the first time, and so much more.
