We recently had the pleasure of talking to one of our very creative co-op members, Rachelle Tolwin, about her business, Little Mountain Kids. Using natural dyes, Rachelle creates stylish, eco-friendly, toxin-free children's clothing. As we’ve gotten to know Rachelle, she’s shared her passion and her process with us during her visits to the co-op to pick up food for her family and supplies for her business. We asked Rachelle to share more with us about what she does, and a recipe for homemade dye. She kindly obliged.Read More
