Description

This is a set of 2 organic cotton muslin napkins, naturally wrinkled and soft. They have been gently frayed to create a laid back, shabby chic feel. Perfect for a cosy meal for two - just add candlelight or to spoil someone with breakfast in bed!

Madder and red onion skins have been used to under-dye the napkins to give a vintage, muted pink/ beige background and then they have been later, over-dyed and tie-dyed with black tea and iron water to produce the soft grey hue.

Madder and red onion skins are ancient dyes that has been used for thousands of years. Cloth dyed with madder was found in the tomb of Tutankhamen and in the ruins of Pompeii.

Each one measures approx. 48cm by 48cm and being plant dyed means they will vary in pattern, giving them an unique 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.

Hand wash to preserve the crinkled appearance, 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

I have used the softest organic muslin to make these. The combination of colours used give them a beautiful vintage feel that can’t be replicated using synthetic dyes.
