We search our town’s thrift stores for gently used cotton clothes to give them a second life with plant dyes. Each item is one of a kind and is a labor of love. Because we aren’t too hot about the binary system of clothing sizing and items shrink slightly after scouring, all our items are unisex and we state the width and length of each item for the most accurate representation of size. We recommend measuring a shirt you own as a reference for finding the best size for your comfort. If you don't have a measuring device, a standard piece of printing paper can work as a rough guide, as they are 8.5” x 11”.
A note on skin sensitivity: We 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.
