  • The Origin dress is one you'll want to slip into daily, trust us. It's made from luxurious bamboo for a body-hugging, second-skin fit. We kept the silhouette streamlined, so you can easily adapt this piece to your wardrobe. What's more, it includes a built-in bra, for lightweight support. Great on it's own or paired with the delphine top or dress in linen!  These one's we have harvested plants and naturally dyed in Ontario in beautiful natural colours.  Solids are $130CND and  eco prints are $140 CND.  Eco printing involves making a bundle of leaves in fabric and steaming or simmering in water or dye. In these conditions, certain plants leave their imprint on the fabric. Different effects are produced by using different plants and mordants.

    • 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.
