Description

This set of 3 organic cotton muslin cloths are perfect for facial cleansing and gentle exfoliation, due to their light weight, netted texture. Their soft, raw edges avoid the harshness of seams against this delicate area. Each one measures approx. 32cm by 32cm (12 inches by 12 inches) and is very quick to dry after use.

They have been lovingly hand and tie-dyed with the ancient, medicinal plant, madder, which has been used for thousands of years to soothe irritated skin. These cloths are also perfect for babies’ sensitive skin.

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.

Being plant dyed, means each one is unique and will vary slightly in colour and pattern.

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

Each parcel is beautifully wrapped in acid free tissue paper and tied with hessian string or plant dyed cotton trim. All packaging is plastic free - paper tape, recycled cardboard boxes and padding. All of these materials are biodegradable. The corn starch bags are compostable.

Inspiration

I have used the softest organic muslin to make these, so they would be suitable for sensitive skins. Madder produces a beautiful shade of dusky pink, which reminds me of summer roses; a pink hue that can’t be replicated using 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 a good colourfast, natural dye.
