Plant Based Dyeing

All of our dyes are organic and ethically sourced.

Indigo: Indigo is a traditional Japanese art form/technique to achieve patterns and color. By twisting, tying and binding the fabric we create interesting patterns of white against varying degrees of blue.

Bundle Dyeing: We place various plants, barks, flowers, plant powdering into fabric, roll it up and steam it to imprint the fabric with unique one of a kind colors and patterns.

Immersion baths: Is a process of creating a solid color from one to many plants in a pot. Currently we are exploring madder root, cochineal, eucalyptus, logwood, sequoia and walnut hulls.


Ice Dyeing

We use non-toxic, fiber-reactive dyes poured over ice to create a different take on traditional tie dye.
