I search the town’s thrift stores for gently used cotton clothes to give them a second life with plant dyes, some of which I ethically forage and collect like eucalyptus, chokeberries, walnuts, avocado pits, flowers. Each item is one of a kind and a labor of love. Because the gender binary system is a drag, all our items are unisex. We state the width and length of each item for the most accurate representation of size along with manufacturers’ size. We recommend measuring a shirt you own as a reference for finding the best size for your comfort. Not all “Larges” are the same exact size, as manufacturers of items vary. 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: 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.
