Natural Fibers. Natural Dyes. Slow Fashion.

I create one-size-fits-all fashions from organic cottons, hemps, and silk--naturally dyed then cut and machine sewn using zero-waste principles. People who experience my one of a kind pieces of sustainable wearable art feel themselves draped in natural beauty. The organic cotton is soft, the natural dye colors are rich and earthy; the garment is a comforting capacious shape, that flatters everybody

I love growing dye plants and collecting flower heads for my dye vats.

I use a variety of methods of dyeing fabric--vat dyeing, bundle dyeing, botanical printing, and fabric painting--for a complex surface design.

I love unwrapping my dyed bundles and seeing the results. It gives me so much joy to see my garden living on cloth. Photo: Laura McGee
