HerStory 2022 / November Colorway: Braiding Sweetgrass Author: Robin Wall Kimmerer
From Knitted Wit:
This month's HerStory recipient was the first one we chose as we compiled our list. It's also maybe the most difficult of them to write, because we could literally write an entire book on how much we love Robin Wall Kimmerer's writings and theories and entire person. Kimmerer is a botanist and a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, and her writings effortlessly fuse these two perspectives into a new/old way of communing with, learning from, and being in nature.
Our Braiding Sweetgrass colorway was created to echo the aesthetics, not only of the book cover, but of the sweetgrass itself the book centers its story around. Our hope for you is that you enjoy this colorway, and the project you make from it, as you listen to the soothing sounds and beautiful stories that make up Robin Wall Kimmerer's writing and speaking.
