EPISODE FOUR :: Emily Hundt of In The Folds - Discovering Upscale Upcycling and Creating Patterns that Challenge and Delight


The Close Knit podcast showcases artists, designers, and makers from all over the world who work with fibre in its many forms. Knitters, spinners, sewers, textile artists - all will be celebrated on the Close Knit podcast.

In this week's episode, I chat to Emily Hundt from In the Folds. Em and I cover a lot of ground in this one - from her time in London, when she was exposed to incredible upcycled garments, to how she chooses materials and construction techniques. Everything that Em does is remarkably considered - and that has led to a beautiful aesthetic for her brand. She works primarily with reclaimed materials that she works tirelessly to source. See the photos below of Em and her work, and check out the links to some of the things we mentioned in the show.

Close Knit Now Has a Podcast!

There is so much talent and beauty in the fibre arts world. It's all around us - social media, in magazines, workshops, retail spaces - and I'm constantly in awe of it.

So, I'm bringing you a recorded podcast, along with little blog posts, simply titled, the Close Knit Podcast, because these folks (mostly women, I've found - #thefutureisfemale) are just too good not to share. 

At first, I planned to make this a written series, and then my friend Caitlin (pictured above, center) suggested we chat these out and record the answers. And I thought, "like a podcast?" - and then I was really excited about making a podcast, as that's the way I most love consuming stories and interviews, so I changed gears and started recording my conversations with these ladies. 

Weavers, knitters, sewers, natural dyers, crochet-lovers, and everything in between. We'll get a peek into their work and lives, and get to know a bit about what got them started and what keeps them going. 

Can't wait to share these gems with you!
