Handmade 

The plant dyed fabrics are inspired and infused with botanical colors from flowers, roots, vegetables etc. ensuring zero waste. Each piece is individually hand-dyed with the plant pigments using multiple processes over 5-7 days. They are sometimes vat dyed, bundle dyed with flowers, herbs and spices or a combination of both to achieve the desired look. Take care of it just like you would take care of your plants. Some colors may shift or fade over time, especially if exposed to the sun for long periods of time. Keep your piece in a cool place and in shade for their longevity. 

By choosing this handmade piece, you help preserve craftsmanship and support rural artisan communities. We truly appreciate your support.
