Linda Row FRSA, is a sustainable clothing and textile designer and founder of Boutique Ethique. She is currently undertaking a PhD, investigating methods to mitigate harmful effects from man made electromagnetic frequencies from wireless devices.
In 2020 Linda conceived an Arts Council funded project called Foraged Colour. This collaborative project addressed the issues surrounding contemporary textile and clothing production and focused on ‘closed loop’, ‘slow fashion’ and ‘localism’; foraging for plants to dye British wool fibre, which was used for the creation of textiles and clothing.
Linda has not used oil derived products in her garments since 1997, choosing to replace synthetic interlinings with recycled off cuts and replacing zips with bio-degradeable buttons.
Linda is a founder member of seam Collective.
