Children’s pink festival scarf, plant dyed with madder

Children’s pink festival scarf, plant dyed with madder
£13.00 1 Available
Love this


This children’s festival scarf is made from organic muslin cotton from GOTS certified mills. I have botanically tie-dyed the scarf using the ancient dye plant, madder.

The scarf has a raw hem and is soft and warm to wear. Madder has traditionally played a big part in Ayurvedic medicine, including being used to treat skin irritations. This makes madder a perfect natural dye to have next to delicate skin due to its soothing properties.

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.

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.


Madder is one of my favourite plant dyes and I love how the tie-dye patterns look like shells.
