Berbo is Erin Berkowitz, artist and small business owner, making naturally dyed goods by hand in Los Angeles, California.
Berbo is slow, sustainable fashion inspired by the artist's love of plants and the earth. The upcoming line of vintage and handmade accessories is created with plant fibers and colored with plant dyes.
Berbo is about using and loving what we already have; what we’ve always known, but may have forgotten. The artist aims to revive what may have otherwise been discarded—secondhand clothes, foraged dyestuffs—and to transmute the earth’s beauty in a rainbow of colors.
Berbo is a mix of my their family names, and it’s the name of this creative project I’ve been working on since 2012.
