Rosemarine Textiles is a sustainable textile studio based in Detroit, Michigan run by me, Meghan Navoy.
We make hand torn silk ribbons, table runners, napkins and scarves using the rich, complex colors of plant based dyes. Each piece is made by hand in our Detroit studio using processes that take many days to achieve the perfect color.
I am passionate about creating beautiful textile pieces in a way that respects both people and the planet. It's important to me to utilize what would otherwise be waste material - whether working with local restaurants for dye producing food scraps and florists for day old blooms.
I gained much of my textile background at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City where I earned a BS in Textile Development. There, I co-founded the FIT rooftop natural dye garden and began exploring my love of sustainable production and botanical color.
I continue learning and experimenting every day, using textiles as a way to express the natural world through our collection of home goods and accessories.
