We are pleased that Kelly Ruth will be attending the festival again this year with her fantastic clothing line made from sustainable fibres including merino wool, linen, organic cotton, hemp and modal. All of Kelly’s work is hand dyed using plant dyes, and low impact synthetic dyes.
Kelly has worked for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and ballet companies across Canada as the dyer/painter in the wardrobe departments. Ten years ago she started to slowly build her clothing line to where it is now.
She is most inspired by the natural dyes that she uses, but also the ethical fashion movement, local manufacturing models and sourcing sustainable fabrics. Kelly’s favourite media to work with are silk and merino and especially natural dyes. Ensure that you check out Kelly Ruth and her sustainable line of clothing.
