BEHIND THE BRAND | BOTANICAL DYEING

We are making the change to plant based organic dyes, which has always been a dream of mine. They provide incredibly rich tones that are gentle on the skin and the environment.

The beautiful subtle colours come from 5 indigenous plants such as indigo from tarum leaf, red from secang wood, yellow from mango leaf, brown from mahogany leaf, black from ketapang leaf and many more. Not only are we able to achieve the beautiful earthy colours but there are so many environmental advantages to making the switch:

  • Do not need to cut or kill the trees, harvesting multiple times
  • Trees benefit from pruning reducing leaves during some periods of time
  • Helps local farmers with a new income stream to culivate these plants
  • Extracts are easy to make
  • Leaf waste is easily composted and returned to the soil
  • Raw material are a sustainable supply and can readily be replanted
  • Waterways are kept clean of toxins

One of my favourite things to do in Bali is visit the team at the dye house and see my garments in process.
