Spring marks the return of bountiful fresh, local food, but what about fresh, local… fashion? Kate Huling and Andrew Tarlow, the husband-and-wife team behind Brooklyn foodie establishments Marlow & Sons, Diner, Roman’s, Reynard’s, and Marlow & Daughters, decided to tackle that challenge and take a local, seasonal approach to apparel and accessories with Marlow Goods. Using the leftover hides from their farm-fresh meat, along with locally sheered wool, Kate has designed a beautiful collection of hand-crafted sweaters, leather bags, and home accessories. On today’s show, Kate joins me to talk about the chain of suppliers and craftspeople involved in Marlow Goods, the challenges and joys of seasonal farm-based fashion, and some of her own favorites for springtime style and food.
Plus, later on in the show, Dane weighs in on the Mad Men Season 6 premier with some thoughtful insights about character development, and we’ll hear new music from Luxury Liners, Kurt Vile, Kids On A Crime Spree, and more. Who cares what it’s like outside? It’s springtime here on BTR!
