Each piece we create is one of a kind. We work solely with our hands, without guides, and honor the power and spirit of improvisation.
Our plant and insect dyes are harvested in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner from conscious companies and collectives that give back to the source.
Each textile piece must undergo its own personal process that spans 3-5 days of preparation and immersion.
24 hours of Mordanting (preparing the fiber)
24 - 48 hours of Extracting the Dye from the matter.
24 hours of Clamping, Tying, Binding, Wrapping, Dying, Washing and Drying.
Multiple colors could add an additional 48 hours.
