My name is Margaret Carlson and I am an experimental textile designer with a passion for creating and working with sustainable textiles. My work aims to not harm the earth, because it is my main source of inspiration. I am mainly inspired by the rich colors, sights, and the culture of the American Southwest. I try to uses natural materials whenever my designs allow such as natural dyes, up-cycling and recycling, and reconstruction. I have recieved my BFA in Fiber Arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Some of my design-related experiences include interning as a dress designer for Free People, styling and sales for Red Clover Boutique, and working as a dye apprentice for Miranda Bennett Studio.
