- Learn to Dye
New to our collection this year, these oversized linen totes are perfect for carrying all kinds of everything. This large tote is perfect for all shopping, the beach (I wish!) or for all you mums & dads who have a million things to carry (& remember) on any given day.
Patiently hand-dyed using the beautiful blue dye known as "Indigo". Indigo is the name given to the dye that comes from plants (of which there are many species) containing the indigotin compound which produce an incredible blue dye. Used throughout Asia, South America & Africa, indigo has a rich and vibrant history & is one of the oldest know natural dyes used by man.
The process of hand dyeing is by its nature slow. Our textiles have to be prepared for dyeing by a process known as scouring & then hand-dyed to achieve the shades you see. Once we achieve the desired depth of shade, we wash all our pieces in an eco-friendly detergent before carefully labelling & packaging in recycled paper products.
