“Weeding” (Nezāles, in Latvian)
Together with Ingrīda Pičukāne we plan to make a fashion collection about weeds that are common in the gardens and meadows in Estonia and Latvia. The first one in the collection will be Nettle (Nātre) . The textiles will be accompanied by a small zine in Latvian and English about the particulal plant and its use in cooking. The other weeds of the collection will be: Gārsa (Ground-elder) and Pienene (Dandellion).
