NÅDE ~ Danish for grace… this is our studio’s mission. To show grace to our Earth, to display grace to others, and practice grace from within on this ever evolving journey.
Maggie Pate the designer + purveyor of Nåde.She began her career in fashion modeling internationally then retired to work for a label in New York City. Her work in textiles is a cross-section that explores the synthesis of textures, natural colors, and purpose over profit art campaigns.
The last few years, her focus has shifted to cultivating a studio that is 100% sustainable and eco-friendly through capturing color with predominantly food waste collected from local restaurants and farms. In June 2018, she release her first book with Page Street Publishing - The Natural Colors Cookbook, which explores capturing color with food waste and pantry basics. Making natural dyeing and sustainable colors accessible to all was the main focus of the book.
While she continues to explore natural dyeing, Maggie has extended the NÅDE STUDIO line to include naturally dyed and handwoven home goods through a partnership with Vida Nueva. Through Feed Weave - custom fiber installations & weavings, she continues to illustrate the waste nature of the food industry while advocating for slow craft and fighting food waste & hunger.
