Living in Paonia surrounded by family farms and wild botanicals–combined with learning that chemical textile dyes have a devastating environmental and human health impact–inspired Kate Linehan to begin experimenting with plant dyes. She opened her small boutique and dye studio, Plant Dyed Goods, in Paonia last summer. There she sells a thoughtful curation of natural fiber vintage garb and silk slips, totes and throws, which she colors with cultivated blooms sourced from Zephyros Farm; her own flora, including weld, indigo, woad and dyer’s coreopsis; and foraged sagebrush, rabbitbrush, nettles, goldenrod, walnut and mulberries. The shop also carries beauty, wellness and home products–from beeswax candles to plant-based perfumes–made by local artisans. Shop the website and keep an eye out for upcoming workshops.
