Plant dyed makeup bag using copper beach leaves, black tea and iron water

Plant dyed makeup bag using copper beach leaves, black tea and iron water

Love this


Organic cotton has been used from GOTS certified mills to create this makeup bag. I have botanically hand dyed it using Copper Beach leaves, black tea and iron water, which gives it a distressed, unique appearance.

This makeup bag is unlined and measures approx. 20cm long by 13cm wide, with a hidden zip.

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.

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.

Sponge clean only, preferably with an eco-friendly detergent. Dry out of direct sunlight.


Inspired by black stormy clouds looming over Welsh mountains. Tie dying with black tea and iron water make for some fascinating and unique designs. Throw some Copper Beach leaves into the mix and you’ll find glimmers of steely blue. It’s one of my favourite natural dyeing techniques and you never quite know how the pattern will look until the ‘reveal’.
