Bad Vibes Patch
Hand printed with biodegradable iron oxide ink over a marigold and eucalyptus dyed cotton. This 3" x 4" patch says "Bad vibes can't hold me down" and is made from upcycled / repurposed cotton fabric.
A note on skin sensitivity: I use only biodegradable, non-toxic, planet safe soaps and fabric softeners to make sure our fabrics are safe for all skin types (our favorite is 7th generation products). While it is very rare, some people find mullein irritating to the skin. Our other plant dyes have almost no record of allergies but do please make sure you are not allergic to any of these plants before using our textiles on your own skin.
Care: The best way to keep your items from fading is to hand wash them in cold water, with a gentle soap. Pieces can also be machine washed in cold water on the delicate cycle from time to time. Shifting colors is natural with botanicals and part of the magic of dyeing with living plants. Acidic or citrus soaps can change the pH of your pieces and shift colors towards warmer shades so using a pH neutral soap is best. Ironing works great on cotton to remove creases.
