Kathryn is a self taught designer and natural dyer living in Dublin, Ireland. She started working with textiles and natural dyes whilst living in Northern California. Her journey into the amazing world of sustainable plant dyes began with Indigo dyeing which led her to teach Indigo & Shibori workshops in the Bay Area & beyond.
Kathryn returned to Ireland in 2014 where her commitment to sustainable production led her to create a line of luxurious, naturally dyed Irish Linen textiles for the home. Her naturally dyed textiles can now be found in boutique shops from Ireland to Japan.
Kathryn is passionate about natural dyes, textiles and the integrity of true craftsmanship. She loves sharing the joy & magic of plant dyes with others & teaches ongoing natural dye workshops in Dublin & abroad.
At Kathryn Davey we use only natural fiber's & materials. All of our linen comes exclusively from a second generation family run mill which is the last surviving linen production factory in the South of Ireland. Our wool products are also woven in the South, then sewn to order in Dublin. We prepare all our products and dye in house from our studio in Harolds Cross, Dublin.
Each of our products are dyed by hand using natural dye extracts, making our products natural, sustainable and non toxic to you & the environment. All the colours you see are achieved naturally.
