Adrienne and Kristine are the co-owners of AVFKW, and lead the on-site natural dyeing studio. In 2014, Adrienne and Kristine embarked on a journey to create a tiny indigo farm located in their small Oakland front yard. There they have practiced growing, extracting indigo pigment, dyeing with it and recording the process in their newest book, Journeys in Natural Dyeing, so others can try this incredible process from their home garden.
