Tiger Maru & I in the West Indies

Worlds End Black Barn & Me

Photos by Me.

my black barn shop is really a textile shed with tons of antique textiles and clothing that I naturally dye. its located in the town of Cold Spring, along the Hudson River right where it twists at what was once known as Worlds End to the early explorers. most everything in this black barn is made by hands and most is naturally dyed. my collection varies each year depending upon the craftsmen I meet and the places I sail. while I love wandering foreign lands in my wooden sailboat I also cherish my time on the land in the Hudson Valley, restoring wooden boats and dabbling in weaving, spinning, stitching and natural dying.

for me everything is always changing. but here intros black barn I always carry the basic staples of khadi hand loomed from India and hand blocked light cotton clothing in fabulous colors. my Rajastan India garden tents & pool pavilions are also always available.
