For those of you not on our mailing list I wanted to give an update of what is happening here at Ambatalia. Molly and I are collaborating under a new name The Fabric Society to create a resource center for sustainable textiles and innovative design. We are connecting with Bay Area art schools to give local fashion, textile, and product designers the oppurtunity to work with sustainable materials in a hands-on approach and have created ecologically-based workshops to educate youth and the larger community about the inherent interconnectedness between human and natual life and its role in the textile industry.
I also want to thank Molly for giving me this oppurtunity to take part in her dream of creating a fabric boutique that is much more than a fabric boutique. It is a place that nurtures, loves, and inspires me every day and I am so happy and grateful to be a part of it.
Please keep in touch with what's happening here as Molly has launched her new label Ambatalia, Making Happy - a beautiful collection of organic kitchen textiles (dishtowels, napkins, aprons, etc.) that are handmade with love and are so so AMAZING! They are currently available at Tyler Florence, Mill Valley.
