About

Botanical dyes are dyes derived from nature -The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes frrom plant sources—roots, berries, barks, leaves, and wood.

By using these natural dyes, we are able to minimize the impact of the textile and creative industries on the environment and people

Our current botanical dye collection features Madder (Rubia Tinctorum). A small perennial shrub native to Asia and Europe.

This dye can be dated back as far as the Ancient Egyptians, who buried King Tutankhamun with a cloth dyed red. It can also be dated in Ancient China, in the Zhou dynasty, more than 2000 years ago.

We extract the dye directly from the dried roots and hand dye each item making sure it gets the attention and care it deserves. All created in our home studio.
