Dusky pink apron tie-dyed with madder

Description

This apron is made from heavy weight 100% organic cotton. I have botanically tie-dyed the apron using the ancient dye plant, madder. This apron is a smaller adult size (ladies 8-10). Hem rests approx. just above the knee. It measures approx. 72cm from top of bib to hem and is approx. 68cm wide.

The chemical-free dyeing process is labour intensive as each step takes time and patience - roughly 4 weeks; a quiet protest to the ‘fast, thoughtless and disposable’ way of producing items in modern society. Plant dyeing fabric is a sustainable way of producing unique colours and is kinder to the planet.

Wash, using an eco friendly detergent, preferably below 30°C. Dry out of bright sunlight.

Please note that postage for additional items is FREE in the UK.

Each parcel is beautifully wrapped in acid free tissue paper and tied with hessian string, cotton string or plant dyed cotton trim.

All packaging is plastic free - paper tape, recycled cardboard boxes, padding and corn starch. All of these materials are biodegradable. The corn starch bags are compostable.

Inspiration

I love this shade of dusky pink and it’s one that can only be seen in nature and cannot be replicated by synthetic dyes. Madder has been cultivated as a dyestuff since 1500 B.C. Cloth dyed with madder root pigment was found in the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun and in the ruins of Pompeii. It is extremely colourfast.
