Inflaxuated with Cassie Quinn
With fashion’s obsessive focus on new materials, we question what happens when we reinvent materials that have existed locally for centuries. In conversation with founder of CQ Studio, Cassie Quinn we unravel her research on diversifying the use of flax as a material and her journey into regenerative practices. Flax is traditionally harvested and spun into linen and has a strong connection with Ireland. In this episode, we talk about the hidden benefits of natural materials; the big issue with misinformation (aka greenwashing); whether we will achieve biodegradability in fashion and more. A bountiful future can be made possible through past intricate methods, in Cassie’s view.
