Buy Issue 113 Raw of Selvedge magazine. Textiles always reflect the times in which they are made, and now with sustainability at the forefront of our consciousness, we are looking again at ancient fabrics. We see plain woven structures constructed from undyed yarn used to create textured surfaces – materials that demonstrate our connection to the earth, reject the digital age and acknowledge a simpler life.

In this issue, Rachel Baker finds respite from failing health by relocating to the Luberon, France, where she forages for plants to dye vintage linens in a regenerative practice. Marjolein Hessels takes a scientific approach to dye her threads with the same plants she chooses to represent in stitch, and regular contributor Magali An Berthon introduces us to artists working at the intersection of hard and soft materials. Ilama in Argentina and Llanatura in Mallorca exploit the beauty of undyed fibre to form sustainable businesses. Karen Selik explains why wild sericulture in central and eastern India exemplifies Gandhian principles written into the Indian constitution in 1950. Designers in Mexico take on the legacy of the once-global sisal industry to find new applications for agave cactus fibre. And closer to home, in a Herculean endeavour, Allan Brown undertakes to weave a dress from foraged nettle.

What is Selvedge magazine?

Polly Leonard launched Selvedge magazine in 2004 to celebrate our cerebral and sensual addiction to cloth while promoting skilfully made and carefully considered textiles. Every issue features talented makers and their lives and stories. Polly believes the most interesting and evocative textile stories deserve to be shown in the best possible light and has thus created a magazine that is an aesthetically beautiful experience.

This magazine is available in PAPER format.
