Rosemarine Textiles is a sustainable textile studio based in Detroit, Michigan run by me, Meghan Navoy. I make hand torn silk ribbons, table runners and napkins using the rich, complex colors of plant based dyes. Each piece is made by hand in my studio mindfully with processes that take many days to achieve the perfect color. I am passionate about creating beautiful textile pieces as sustainably as possible. It's important to me to utilize what would otherwise be waste material - whether raiding the compost pile or using day-old blooms from a local florist for dyes, or recycling water to water my garden. I am drawn to use natural fibers - with Rosemarine Textiles you'll find only silks, linens, cottons and hemps.
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 botanical color. I continue learning and experimenting every day, using textiles as a way to express nature in the home and at special events.
