Inspirational textile designer Mary Bergtold Mulcahy owns and runs Les Indiennes in New York. She sources printed textiles from traditional craftsmen in India. Yet despite the growth of her business, she says the production of her fabric doesn’t use any electricity in the village where it is made, create any pollution or disrupt the traditional way of life. Les Indiennes is also a Fair Trade employer for more than 50 families.
Most of the designs are traditional but Mary has created some beautiful modern interpretations.
Read an interview with her on http://www.dailyimprint.net. These photos are from the Les Indiennes website http://www.lesindiennes.com.
Another bumper season of pomegranates this year. I’ve been squeezing them and mixing with fresh orange juice as a morning “burst of vitamins” drink. Delicious.
What a beautiful colour they are!
