Cultivating flowers and roots for sacred floral dyes.

Re-creating a slow fashion industry from farm to fabric.  

Flowers to Fiber.
 

Remembering our roots and the ways our grandmothers spun wool and stood over a dye pot of goldenrod creating gold magic.

Yes, There was a time when a family was obligated to grow a small patch of flax and process it into linen as a part of a collective offering. 

Even before that, Native peoples were spinning and creating cords and ropes for their fishing nets and baby buntings.

Silver Sage Flora wants to keep these skills and memories alive and pass them on to you.

We began growing flowers for fiber in 2021. After a full year of pandemic changes, we were seeking a new chapter to add to our ever-growing story of flower farming. 

Fiber folk ourselves we had spent much time the previous year spinning and processing native plant fibers and wanted to see what we could color them with. Soon our gardens swooned with flower color and the dye pots swirled with rainbows. 

Now, we are working on weaving flower color into our farm to provide you with the same beautiful prismatic experiences we have come to know and love.
