The Plant dyed collection is a small collection of antique clothing which has been hand selected and dyed using avocado and turmeric.
These beautiful timeless pieces have stood the test of time so far and are pieces to cherish and wear again and again. Plant dyes will naturally fade over time which is a normal occurrence.
With careful wear, washing and drying they will maintain their color longer. when they have faded beyond your preference they can be re dyed at home very easily.
All garments are vintage so have lived a long and full life...they often bear some signs of use along the way, we will always clearly state above anything outside of normal ageing and washwear.
