  • Friday, Fri-Yay! We’re so excited as every day passes, we are counting down the days until our show (8 days to go!) and part of our excitement stems from connecting with all the companies at the show. We know it will be pure magic to have so many local and eco-aware brands in one space,...

  • Hello Thursday! We are shining the spotlight all this week on Eco Fashion and Natural Fabrics, so who better than Le Fil Rouge Textiles to get us thinking about Spring!
