Hand dyed using real Indigo
Plant dyeing is a long slow process of infusing herbs into fabric allows the qualities of the plant to bond with the fabric, thereby embracing its medicinal qualities.Wearing this special piece is a way of ingesting herbs through your biggest organ...your skin!
Indigo is a plant that has been used to colour fabric for 6,000 years. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Some say it even has the ability to detoxify through the skin and stimulate the immune system.
For more information about the medicinal benefits of specific plants used in dyeing please check out the “About dye plants” page.
Please note: plant dyeing is an organic process and colour results will always vary slightly. Sometimes patterns or designs show up in my work and sometimes colours are richer or brighter in certain areas. This is all part of the magic and mystery of working with plant dyes.
High waisted to sit just at the belly button. Full bottomed to ensure they don’t wedge up.
