The more I learn about Margarita and her business, the more I like her.
I found her plant-dyed sleep masks when I was searching for the right fit for the new Beautiful Voyager Marketplace. The titles of her masks caught my eye: Calendula, Nettles, Lavender, Hibiscus. “What is this?” I thought. And how does it work?
I’ve since learned that Margarita makes her wonderful sleep masks by hand using ancient plant dyeing techniques. I was particularly struck by this line that she wrote, "Color theory confirms that colors evoke a physiological response. The reaction to natural colors is both calming and intriguing."
I wanted to learn more about her and her business, so I asked if I could interview her here. She said yes!
Question #1: Thank you for taking part in this interview Margarita! I would love to hear a little about your background. Where are you from? Your name sounds Polish. (I am married to a Skrzypek, so I recognize the confusing S-Z combo).
