It’s Analogue v. Digital Week here on BTR, and I have such a cool show for you today! I’m joined by rising star designer Jeff Garner, who launched his sustainable clothing line Prophetik in 2002. Taking style cues from the small historic Southern town in which he grew up, Garner aims to bring Civil War – era romance and durability back into today’s fashion. Working with natural fibers and plant-based dyes, he creates high-end garments that are timelessly elegant and aesthetically edgy. On today’s Sew & Tell, Jeff will talk about the concerns that led him to create Prophetik, the growth of sustainable production within today’s fashion marketplace, and a few unique projects he’s done including elephant-painted fabric and a documentary on his life and work.

Plus, we’ve got a great playlist including new music from Tennessee’s own Kingston Trio, along with Paleo, Silver Swans, and more. Your style fix starts now on BreakThru Radio…
