Rust yellow tea towel tie dyed using pomegranate skins and iron water

Rust yellow tea towel tie dyed using pomegranate skins and iron water

This tea towel has been made from heavy weight, organic cotton at GOTS certified mills. It has then been hand dyed in Wales using pomegranate skins and iron water. I used a tie-dye technique, which produces a distressed, industrial and unique design.

The chemical-free dyeing process using plants, is labour intensive as each step takes time and patience; a quiet protest and sustainable alternative to the ‘fast, thoughtless and disposable’ way of producing items in modern society.

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

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

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


I wanted to create a tea towel with a distressed appearance so used separate dye baths. One dye bath had pomegranate in and the other iron water and it was repeatedly dipped over several days, first without tie-dye and then using this technique. The result is a one off, rustic appearance, which has a warmth and vintage feel to it.
