Work


The work of Sophie Kanter and the bluest i focuses on
locally foraged dye plants, upcycling, and mending. Giving life to fabrics and wearables
through the power of plants, and extending the life of clothing through mending
and dyeing techniques both fit into an overall vision of truly slow fashion.
