These special colors are created from plant matter like marigolds, indigo, cactus, and root bark. They have a unique patina that may vary throughout the garment as well as piece-to-piece and will further shift with wear, washing, and the way we move through light.

These pieces have been created with extra care and unrushed time; we recommend the same level of attention to maintain its integrity and maximize longevity. For best results:
~ Turn garment inside out and do not soak
~ Machine wash cold or hand wash
~ Wash separately or with like colors
~ Once washed, remove from the machine and give each item a light shake off
~ Hang in the shade or tumble dry low, separately
~ Avoid hanging in direct sunlight or laying flat to dry
~ Use a mild, eco-friendly soap that is as pH neutral as possible (chemical-based detergents may cause color change)
Handle your naturally dyed goods with extra love and care. If you get a stain, run under cold water and, with your hands, gently encourage the stain to loosen from the fibers. Soak the spot with 1-2 tsp of eco-friendly dish soap and cold water for an hour or two, then machine wash cold.
-Measurements are approximate and may deviate 1" due to variances in the garment dye process
Creating dye from scratch is an extremely dedicated and physical process, which is why these colors are more expensive than our year-round garment dye colors. Learn more about working with plants, and the complexities behind natural dye on our blog!
