Garmology Podcast: Weaving songs – with Sam Goates of Woven In The Bone (S03E02)

After a long career in textile design and fabrication, Sam Goates set up shop as a solitary weaver in the port of Buckie in the North of Scotland. Bringing a down at heel bitsa this, bitsa that Hattersley single-width loom back to life to weave custom cloths for discerning customers worldwide. We talk about Sam’s time in Australia, how she is not weaving Harris Tweed, the frustrations of keeping a vintage loom running right, employing family members and how there are never enough hours in the day. Inevitably we also get into sustainability, buying better and less and try to find an answer to what contributes to a garment being cherished.
