Plant Dyed Tees
Inspired by and for our Earth
We are inspired by and for our Earth. Our clothing is designed with the most eco-friendly methods and ingredients we can get our hands on, so that we have the lowest possible impact on our environment.
We are so excited to introduce our latest collaboration with Kristen Morrison over at Love all Species in Oceanside, CA. Kristen helped us with the plant dye process for out entire kids line and our most recent batch of Cactus Jams tees. We have also collaborated with Hannah Ross, from Hanoux natural dyes for our Golden, Cactus Jams, and Beach Dreamer tees! Both women's expertise with the ancient craft of natural dying is the perfect partnership for our sustainable t-shirt vision!
Our GOTS certified organic cotton t-shirts were plant dyed in small batches, which offers unique one of a kind pieces. Our muted Beach Dreamer tees were dyed with avocado, iron, and cutch. Our recent batch of Cactus Jams tees were dyed with indigo, weld, marigolds, and rhubarb by Kristen. Our Cactus Jams tees were dyed with indigo and osage wood with Hannah.
Our talented plant dyers only uses ethically sourced ingredients for their botanical dyes and put so much love and time into this “slow fashion” ancient process.
Shop the collection here, the environment and your skin will thank you!
More on Dyes
Whenever possible, we choose plant dyes over synthetic dyes, to eliminate chemicals that both effect our body (through our skin), the environment, and communities near dye house facilities (specifically in countries without regulations). To learn more about the impact of dyes on the environment check out our blog "Bye to synthetic Dyes"
We are currently researching low-impact synthetic dyes, the regulations surrounding them, and the highest level of certification that can be achieved with the use of them in the U.S. We will be blogging when we have gathered a comprehensive collection of information, as this information is not transparent from production teams and other "sustainable brands".
