Originally from New York City, Barrie Cohen has spent several years traveling, working on organic vegetable farms throughout the country. There she began studying different uses for plants, dabbling with herbal remedies and dying fabric with native plants. Upon returning to New York she continued exploring color: gathering flowers from local markets and foraging plants on weekend hikes. Now with her company, Beezie Textiles, Barrie spends most of her time working with natural color and sewing repurposed fabric together. Beezie Textiles combines a love for nature with a passion for a cozy home to create sustainable and natural home goods.
