Plant Spirit Fibers was born out of a deep love for
plants and color and realizing the healing power they contain. When we
connect with the deep wisdom and healing power of the plant kingdom we come
home to our lives and our bodies in a different way and begin to develop deeper and
more dynamic relationship with the life force around us.
Plants provide deep healing, whether drinking a cup of
tea, taking an herbal tincture, spending time out in nature
with plants, or wearing a sacred textile dyed with plants. This has been my
inspiration in creating these plant dyed accessories, dyed with plants we grow
organically on our farm or forage locally. We believe the spirit of the plants
live in these plant dyed pieces, they carry the vibration and healing energy of
the plants in their fibers. And when we wear these items they serve as a
reminder of our connection to that plant energy. It is a beautiful way to wear your medicine. Our connection with the
healing power of plants is with us all the time. We don't have to be in the
presence of the actual plant or imbibe it's substance to feel the connection. We
encourage you to make your connection with plants and hope you will find my
art inspiring in this way.
Plant Spirit Fibers in based in Brookfield, Vermont at Plant Spirit Farm & Fibers where we grow
all the plants we use for natural dye. Our plant nursery is focused on rare and unusual plants, we sell a wide variety of plants: medicinal herbs, culinary herbs, perennials, annuals, flowers, vegetables, and of course an extensive variety of plants for dye and printing.
As our farm continues to evolve, creating plant spirit inspired fiber art, infusing textiles with plant spirit medicine, dyeing and printing fiber with plants has become a family affair. My husband, Zac, is responsible for growing most of the dye plants, helping with harvest and processing, while I do all the dye work. And our four year old daughter Maybelle loves to join in with all of it. We have a beautiful outdoor studio where we do the processing and dye work and where we offer classes in plant dye and fiber arts during the summer. We now have angora goats and are excited about incorporating their beautiful angora mohair into our nuno-felted pieces.
We live on a beautiful farm and homestead in Brookfield, Vermont. We have dairy and fiber goats, chickens, our cat, and dog. We grow nearly all our own food and medicine. We feel so grateful to be able to farm this land and be able to offer the gift of plant healing and beauty. I hope you enjoy our work.
