LOVE this show with textile artist and artisan collective founder Rupa Trivedi. Fresh off the plane all the way from Mumbai, India, Rupa and Melanie have a rousing, insightful conversation about all things artisan.

Rupa’s method of collecting the discarded flowers and other sacred offerings at Hindu temples is fascinating. As is she.
