Linze traveled the world all of her twenties living out of hotels and suitcases, embracing different cultures and collecting special artifacts along the way. She was raised with a love of the outdoors and appreciating the real connection of the world to her everyday life. Her love for new travel is constant, but her deep rooted love to the American Southwest and four corner states is where she always grows most inspired. Linze created Dirty Feathers when she was 28 after seeing an image of a naked woman wearing feathers on her head in a photo she came across in the mountains. She knew then she wanted to finesse her love of confident woman, indigenous culture and nature into one. Her intention with Dirty Feathers is to couple all of these things together, by remembering to smell the flowers on the way to work, walking in the grass barefoot or drinking wine naked from a ceramic mug. The items she gathers and makes are reminders we are all connected.
