WHO: Shellie Pomeroy, the founder of Silk & Willow, a company that specializes in textiles dyed with plants–including those foraged from Pomeroy’s Hudson Valley locale. It’s a job she hopes inspires others to set aside the color-chip book and explore nature’s palette.
WHAT: From gathered flowers and spools of fabric to the lovely ribbons Pomeroy makes to tie wedding bouquets, it’s clear colors and textures are the shining stars on Silk & Willow‘s feed. Go here for a daily dose of muted tones and inspiring outdoor scenes, like a budding flower as it transforms and withers to seed.
WHY: Because it’s important to remember nature’s gifts and their earthy pigments.
“Silk & Willow is the culmination of the daily activities that give me the most joy: exploring my love for nature and color, capturing that color visually and tangibly, and creating a bespoke product that can be enjoyed daily or saved as a keepsake for years to come.”
