Who We Are

The people we value at every step of our process.
Heidi Barr

Heidi Barr

founder

The land, textiles and design have always been central in my life.

In 2012, I became a working shareholder at my local urban farm, Henry Got Crops, as part of the community supported agriculture movement. I saw some modest needs going unmet on the farm and imagined a way I could help. As a former dancer turned costume designer, I was in a period of questioning the sustainability of continuing in costume design. I turned my sewing skills towards making napkins out of the backs of second hand men’s shirts and selling them to support the farm. I volunteered at community events, started to sell my textile goods at local farm markets, and connected with artisans, activists, and other like-minded folks trying to make a difference. I could feel the spirits of my life commingling all at once: the farmers, nurserymen, landscape architects, architects, the gardeners, the environmentalists, the spinners and weavers, even the dancer/performer I started out to be. All my experiences in life came together and formed a single idea: a line of kitchen textiles made with natural and reclaimed materials sold to support urban agriculture. My love for the environment, fabric, and sewing all dancing around each other in varying degrees over time and have coalesced into my current business.

Growing up, I had the luxury of being able to spend a lot of time running in the woods barefoot and splashing in a creek behind my childhood home. I believe this early connection to nature is one of the many reasons that led me on my current journey. During my senior year of college, I wrote a paper about the Environmental Movement and my research shaped me into a passionate environmentalist. My hunger for more knowledge about reducing my carbon footprint and mitigating our human impact on the environment led me to complete my Master’s in Sustainable Management in 2019. I love being a part of The Kitchen Garden Textiles team where we work to make a daily difference for the planet and the people that live on it. I believe that the connection to the natural world, access to local food, and the availability of natural fibers is a crucial part of every human’s well-being and I hope to continue to cultivate those things through the products and philosophies of The Kitchen Garden Textiles. My weekly routine finds me connecting with what is most important to me as I work with Heidi towards a better world, read, take a stroll, water my plants, and spend time outdoors.

 

Initiatives

The latin origins of collaborate mean “to labor together” and through collaboration we deepen our impact and lighten our burdens.

 Growers we support

40% of the gross profits from our linen produce bags are shared by two groups growing food in Philadelphia. The farms we support offer the opportunity for city dwellers to experience the pace of the natural world.

 Flax Project

With farmers, we’re cultivating a US based flax into linen supply on diversified vegetable farms and city lots.

Our Collaboration with Chef Ari Miller

 Chef Ari and I are proud to offer you the result of our collaboration. The Musi collection; made to order elegant textiles designed and named for his restaurant.

The wonderful linen storage bags from Kitchen Garden Textiles play an essential role in my refrigerator, keeping my lettuce, celery and other produce fresh and moist. I have at least three in use at any time. How did I ever manage without them?!!

Wearing my KGT apron is empowering, wearing this garment, that represents many of the values I hope also translate on the plate, makes me feel like anything is possible in my kitchen.

I’m a coffee snob ever since working as a barista at a small, local shop many years ago.... So, along comes a product that is made from linen(!), that I feel *GOOD* about using for my daily dose of caffeinated bliss. Working in sustainability, I’m keyed into products that align with my ethics. Thank you for taking away my guilt for all the paper filters I won’t be using from here on out!
