Garmology: A slower focus – With Dr Aoife Long, journalist (#100, S05/E01)

For the first episode of season 5, and the milestone 100th episode, my guest is Aoife Long, a slow fashion writer from Ireland. Aoife is dedicated to seeking out the stories and craftspeople of her country, putting the spotlight on mainly small, independent makers with a conscious approach to their surroundings and what they produce. We get into the situation for Irish wool and how the old breeds are seeing a renaissance, the reality of Irish linen, how gold is not great, the need to share and more.

You can find Aoife’s newsletter at, the monthly Slow Fashion print and digital magazine Spirit and Luxury and on Instagram as @a.long.ireland
