Journal - 09.18.20 - Lilah Feitner

When I was a little kid I remember standing in a weaving mill on the banks of a babbling brook in Avoca, Ireland.  I remember our picnic and running down a slow gentle meadow but mostly I remember the colors, the sounds of the handlooms clanking and the cloth that was being made right before my eyes and my fascination.

I think I was 3.  We lived nearby.

Looking back my clear memory makes unforeseen sense.  That moment, that day, that visit, picnic and sunny frolic was seared into my psyche to be incubated and percolated and to feed me for countless days of future.

I love interns.

This summer, and now fall, Lilah Feitner has joined me in my little studio as an intern.  She is the daughter of dear friends from the wholesale craft circuit that we ran in, in the 90's and 2000's.  Having fresh eyes, new hands, and a shared passion endears interns to me, building upon the shared history adds to the magic. Lilah and I first 'met' when she was but a bump in her momma's belly. And now with this new chapter we work as fellow creative textile recyclers.  

She is a college student on hold, and creatrix combining recycled clothing and screenprinting into a non-binary collection of functional and one of a kind streetwear.  Her brand is SpinOutApparel

Today I want to shout her out.  She is proof that recycling clothing is actually changing the world.  Watching this eloquent, clear-minded young person create a business combining the things she is passionate about is gratifying. Hearing her spin, and understanding her thought on the recycled clothing movement is helpful and clarifying for me. Her work is pictured here on the left.  

In addition you can listen to her podcast interview with Yours Truly, here.

Here's to it my friends! Here's to nurturing and sharing and then learning and being inspired by the young creative masters around us.

Thanks Lilah.
