Harvesting Memories: The Blackberry Gown and The Tall Woman

Two women in historical attire stand in a forest; one in a simple blue and white dress holding a cloth, and the other in an elegant burgundy gown, embodying a blend of Appalachian heritage and ethereal beauty.

Explore Southern Appalachia’s heritage with the Blackberry Gown, a couture tribute rooted in cherished traditions and memories of blackberry picking. Created by Amanda Tweed for the Southern Appalachian Women project, this gown embodies the spirit of Appalachia and its enduring legacy.
