So sorry for all the technical difficulties today but let’s open up the chat to questions regarding their project, some of the exciting fabrics as part of the quilt and what they hope to do as a result OF the project!
Marijke Bongers
01:03:09
I am reading everything that I can find about iron holding mud. Sometimes they say it must ferment. Did the swamp smell???
Lesley Ham
01:04:14
Great presentations and projects. Are you doing anything to address sustainability of natural materials, such as how cotton led to a drought in Uzbekistan?
Marijke Bongers
01:04:24
I worked with a Taiwanese student, his mother makes barkcloth from Mullberry tree his name is Weiyu Hung
Suzanne Watzman
01:04:34
Do you need interns?
Marijke Bongers
01:04:41
He uses it like lace
Madeleine McGarrity
01:04:42
Is there somewhere we can see Carroll’s presentation after this FF is over? Very sad to miss it.
Karen LePage
01:04:47
The technical difficulties are part of the process, it’s no problem and no need to apologize! So worth the wait!
Anne Aycock
01:04:50
how about dogbane "native hemp"
Lesley Ham
01:04:55
They make cloth from bark in Okinawa.
Mollie Bosman
01:04:56
Yes, is there a way to participate!?
Sierra Weir
01:05:05
Also mulberry feeding silk-moths make silk used for paper and fabric!
Deanna Wilkes-Gibbs
01:05:07
Once we find petroleum-based fabrics in our closets, what’s the most environmentally responsible thing to do? I think many of us wonder how best to divest. Make something new that doesn’t need washing? 😊
Polly Furr
01:05:18
Thank you all for doing such amazing work!
Jacqueline Le Sueur
01:05:26
Good evening from SW England. I am a long time friend of the lovely Carroll and have been collecting textiles for many years, mostly from Asia. Such a fantastic project and so informative. Do hope we can have Carroll’s presentation too. Thank you for having me!
Jean Swanson
01:05:33
Is there any natural fiber that can substitute for elastic?
Carroll Dunham
01:06:16
Please consider signing up for our newsletter I will be happy to share slideshow on Himalayan Dyes this next month. My apologies for technical difficulties!
Samantha Verrone
01:06:19
That video perfectly illustrated why I love the effects of rust (iron) on botanical dyes - the transformative nature of it. Thank you, all - that was inspiring.
Jen Bissonnette
01:06:47
Can we get addresses for newsletter/social media feeds?
Kathleen King
01:06:59

Gika Rector
01:07:31

Rita Romeu
01:07:51

Gika Rector
01:07:54
There’s some interesting work in Peru, using the naturally colored content.
Susan Weltman
01:07:56
NY Times article today about t-shirt factory in Ga (I think) using locally grown cotton - tho not organic.)
Kathleen King
01:08:09

Nat Defileu
01:08:21

Karen LePage
01:08:47
I have been seeing a new product called “sea wool” that includes recycled PET and I wonder if it’s actually helpful or if it’s a well-intentioned but still greenwashing of ocean plastic?
Amy DuFault
01:09:02
Promise we will get Carroll’s presentation and put in the video so you can all see!!!
Barbara Madley
01:09:12
Thank you! This is fantastic- I’m so sorry I have to log off now. I will definitely rewatch when the recording is posted!
Martha Gedemer
01:10:05
I believe there is a filter for your washing machine that will remove microplastics
Morgan K
01:10:20
Fascinating and inspiring presentation, all; thank you! I’m looking forward to seeing Carroll’s work, too!
Nancy Ferro
01:10:37
Thank you, Thank you Thank you, so informative .
Polly Furr
01:10:59
Thank you for addressing all these things that are really on my mind.
M Deane Bowers
01:10:59
Thank you so much; great presentation!
Samantha Verrone
01:11:02
Companies like https://fabscrap.org/ recycle textile ‘surplus’ to remake as stuffing, etc so it won’t end up in landfills
Gika Rector
01:12:37
Thanks so much for this presentation and the work y’all are doing.
Eliza Lindsay
01:13:05
Thank you for those tips on caring for microplastic fabrics....that makes folks with lower incomes able to also do things that can make a difference. (It is sad but 100% natural fabric clothes (especially if you start looking at what is being used as the thread during the sewing together of the cloth) in the usa are often so expensive they are out of reach for many folks! I hope that this will change as we continue to transition away from fossil fuels as it should be the opposite - fossil fuel based fabrics should be priced at their true impact to people and the environment!)
Marijke Bongers
01:13:46
this is one of the most amazing project I've come across and I follow sustainable fashion for so many years! I am so looking forward to the instagram and website! For an exhibition compostclothes we wondered is a cotton with elastomer best buried and feed the cotton back to the soil, or woud the 3% of elastomer be to much a burden on the soil??? Were do we find more answers?
Susan Terrill
01:13:48
please wear blue on Jan 11 for Human Trafficking awareness day.
Judy Saye-Willis
01:14:20
Has anyone found bras made out of something other than synthetics from fossil fuels?
Judy Dominic
01:14:44
Thank you for pulling your disciplines together - everything and every one is so interconnected.
Kirsten Scott
01:14:45
Yes - I’ve seen organic cotton bras
Jacqueline Le Sueur
01:14:51
There os bamboo underwear widely available in Europe and Asia
Marijke Bongers
01:15:24
The bra's and underwear often contain elastomers still called sustainable
Natalie Love
01:15:37
Organic Linen or cotton is better. Bamboo takes some really corrosive chemicals to make the fiber soft enough for cloth
Susan Terrill
01:15:39
There are guppy ball available to go in the washing machine which will help trap the microplastics.
myna lee johnstone
01:15:44
gotta say this is the most wonderful uplifting info and sharing I have experienced as we go into this new year.So grateful for this Hych'qua siem as we say here on Coast Salish territory
Sierra Weir
01:15:44
I have organic cotton undies from Etsy UmaPlumShop
Marijke Bongers
01:16:15
The guppyballs don't solve the problem, what do you do with the fibers from the ball???
Tina Limpert
01:16:19
Amazing work at the intersection of science, art, culture, and sustainability. I can’t wait to share 80 Fabrics with my students and colleagues. Thanks so much to all. Fabulous Feedback Friday!
Judith Gibson-Vick
01:17:00
How do we remove capitalization from the process. I worry about big business commodifying natural materials
Susan Gazell
01:17:26
The problem is the large population on the planet.
Joan LeClair
01:17:27
Whatever we do has to be afordable for everyone.

interesting points. open grazing would run up against property fences. which in turn will get us into discussion of property lines and prop rights. which ultimately leads to how economies are structured. yes. everything's linked, isn't it?
