Children’s pink festival scarf, plant dyed with madder

Children’s pink festival scarf, plant dyed with madder

Description

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.

Inspiration

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