Raia Bryan of Marigold Made is a new addition to our vendor market. Welcome, Raia!
Raia started out experimenting with plant dyes and was taken with the luminous quality of natural dyed silk. She then discovered pleating as a way to create lovely wearable shapes out of the silk. The shapes are reminiscent of items from nature: flowers, leaves, coral, the gills of mushrooms.
She loves the playful, experimental aspect of natural dyeing, and bridging a connection between art, colour, and the natural world.
A favorite piece would be a pair of earrings made from bundle dyed silk. The various colours turned out beautifully and the way the colours come together after gathering the silk is always a fun surprise.
