    • natural dyeing is a very lengthy process involving days of preparation from scouring to tanning to mordanting & finally immersing in the precious botanical dye stuff that has been hand collected.  The results are always surprising & the inherent beauty of natural dyed textile are the nuances of coloration that gives each dyed piece it's one of a kind, unique characteristic.  Naturally dyed textiles are gentle on the environment whereby eliminating the cocktail of toxins associated with synthetic dyeing process but it is an incredibly involved & time consuming process.  Naturally dyed fibers also fade with time & exposure to the sun can quicken the fading process so it's good to be mindful of hand washing separately or with like colours only when absolutely necessary with very gentle ph neutral detergents & drying naturally out of direct sunlight.

Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews

Update: I had given a review not too long ago about the Batwing V neck top that I hadn’t received. I did receive it and it was a gift for my daughter. By looking at it, she was disappointed because of some dark hues from the dye. I contacted the owner, she explained to me that it was a natural part of the dyeing process, but she offered to exchange it. She responded to my email immediately on Christmas Eve! I was impressed! Finally my daughter decided to try it on and it looked really nice on her. She decided to keep it. The perception is different from looking at it and her wearing it! If you decide to purchase a top from the naturally dyed collection, be aware that it could have naturally dark spots on it because of the natural dye process.

Did not receive

Unfortunately I cannot give a review on my top because I haven’t received it yet because of the Canada Post dispute! I’m disappointed!
