In this interview, I talk with fashion designer, consultant and entrepreneur Thao Phoung, who runs textile impact retreats in Vietnam with her company TextileSeekers! We talk about how she became a designer, why she left the corporate world to start these retreats and what sustainability in textiles looks like.
In this interview, I talk to Sigrún Bragaddóttir a teacher, artist, crafter and craftivist from Reykjavik, Iceland. We talk about using craft as way to heal and connect and about Sigrún's own work and journey.
You can connect with Sigrún at her website, https://sigruncraftivist.com/ and on Instagram @sigruncraftivist and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sigruncraftivist/.
