Made from soft 100% raw silk and hand dyed using plants
Silk...this amazing fibre adjusts to your body temperature, providing warmth when you’re cool and cooling when you’re warm. Silk naturally wicks wetness away from your body keeping you dry and comfortable.
Raw silk is antibacterial, soft on sensitive skin and contains naturally occurring oils that soothe and promote healing.
This 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!
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.
