Nature offers us an infinite range of colors, each of which is unique and deeply imbued with the vital Energy of the Earth. The color extracted from the same plant changes from season to season so bringing with it the characteristics of the environment in which the plant has grown, the influence of the sun, water and soil with which it has been fed.
Plants used for natural dyeing often are derived from food waste ( peel of fruit and vegetables ) or grow wild in nature.
For example from the avocado peel you can get a wonderful pink, from the onion a golden yellow and from walnut husk a warm brown!
We choose only plants rich in dyeing proprierties ensuring that the plant is fully used in its entirety. This process is completely NON-VIOLENT by not using any ingredient that might harm the environment or any animal
Also the WATER used for dyeing is 100% reused to irrigate the plants and garden being absolutely free of pollutants.
Wearing a dress dyed with plants means choosing to be on the side of Nature!
