Love this


This apron is made from heavy weight 100% organic cotton by women in a cooperative in Kerela. One adult size - approx. 10-14. I have botanically tie-dyed the apron using black tea and iron water. This gives the apron a beautifully distressed appearance.
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. Avoid contact with strong acids.

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.


The industrial, distressed look is very on trend and I wanted to use black tea and iron with a Shibori tie-dye technique to give this apron an added twist. This apron equally suits a modern or rustic home.
