Rain, rain, don’t go away! This week’s Sew & Tell guest will have you hoping for the next drizzly day: Yurika Nakazono and Marie Saeki are co-founders of TERRA NEW YORK, a the first fashion label dedicated exclusively to creating stylish, cutting-edge rain wear. The TERRA NEW YORK designs are sleek, sophisticated garments and accessories, built for endurance but created with incredible elegance. On today’s show, Yurika joins me to talk about the start of the label, the unique biodegradable plastics used for TERRA NEW YORK pieces, the practical and aesthetic considerations behind each design, some exciting new projects on the horizon for the line, and more.

Plus, I’ve put together a mix that reflects the rain, indie-rock-style; you’ll hear from legendary Tex-Mex-folk band Calexico, Swedish experimental electro-pop songstress Jenny Wilson, and Brit noise pop group Evans The Death. All that and more this hour, so put away that sad, drippy umbrella, pull up a chair, and learn how to stay stylishly dry like a pro with Sew & Tell on BTR!

Odds & Ends
– Read a wonderful, compelling interview with Swedish electro-pop artist Jenny Wilson, in which she talks about her latest album “Demand The Impossible.”
– A startup in San Francisco has developed silk textile that’s 100 times stronger than reinforced steel, but as soft and fluid to the touch as cotton. The possibilities are mind-boggling!
– Looking for the perfect sustainable rain boot to accompany your TERRA NY trench? Look no further than Roma Boots, a “buy one give one” rain boot company modeled around the same principles and practices as TOMS shoes.
– I love to curl up with a good book on a rainy day, and I’m looking forward to cracking open this adventure soon! What’s the best book you’ve ready lately?
