Shoutout to my textile nerds! This weeks podcast is for you! Alexander Robins is co-founder of Blluemade, a New York based independent brand that focuses on beautiful linen textiles. He also teaches courses in design theory and aesthetics at Parsons School of Design. Today we are diving into the world of linen, talking about the different regions it's grown in, what makes linen so beautiful, and why a brand like Blluemade are in love with the 30,000 year old textile. We also chat about the aesthetics of worn clothing, so think about Boro, antique textiles, and decay.
Our theme music is by E.L. Mahon.
