Dyeing "that perfect shade of green" with local leaves

I'm happy to share the story of one of our visits with Prae Pan Group in an article entitled "The Women Who Weave" as a guest blogger at StyleSubstanceSoul. Prae Pan is the first group we began working with way back when -- a women's weaving co-operative that's now more than 20 years old.
