ABOUT MYRIAM

Originally educated in music and visual arts, Myriam Rochon turned to horticulture, agriculture and environmental sciences to perfect her knowledge of the plants that form the basis of her materials of predilection. In 2015, she launched the habi habi project. Specializing in the ecological harvesting and gathering of dye plants for textile dyeing, she has since shared her knowledge with an enthusiastic and growing community, and more recently returned to her research-creation practice, where she focuses in particular on spinning, weaving, vegetable dyeing and lacquered pigments.
