NATURAL DYE PROCESS
Hand-dyed with low-immersion dye techniques in the Southern California mountains, with joy, love, care and grounding energy by myself.
The natural dye used in this piece, Cochineal, provides a bright, earthy palette to explore as colors in the piece wander from dark to light, pooling in places, making it a one of a kind (OOAK) work of art.
Cochineal is a natural dye from the body of a tiny insect that lives on cacti. It has been used to dye textiles for thousands of years, and more recently in the last few hundred years, in make-up, and to color foods. It dyes in gorgeously, rich shades of pinks, magentas, reds and purples.
*This item comes in a variety of naturally & hand-dyed options, as shown in the included photo in this listing.
** 1 Hand Dyed Cotton Half Apron is included in this purchase. All other items (scissors, pencil, hook, etc.) pictured are not included in this sale.
*** NOTE: All hand-dyed items are subject to “imperfection” in color consistency, dark and/or light spots, and flecks of surprising colors mixed in due to the nature of the dye process. If you, like me, enjoy these “imperfections” as their own creations, I encourage you to purchase. If you are looking for more consistency, please consider shopping for a factory-dyed item in another shop. Thanks!

* All hand-dyed textiles have been hand washed and pressed before shipping.
In order to best care for your hand-dyed piece, be sure to always wash separately.
Color bleed can continue to occur long after the dye process is complete, though generally minimal.
Dyes are handwash-safe and fade-resistant, though long durations in direct sunlight or washing with harsh cleansers will fade most dyes.
An occasional gentle hand washing with a delicate soap and cold water is perfect. Lay flat to dry. Iron as needed and preferred.
