The Stitching Project Natural Plant Dyed Colours

Made with love.


Plant Based Dyes • Plant Dyes will age and fade gracefully. • Gentle cold wash. • Dry in shade and air. • DO NOT use strong chemicals, beach, enzyme wash, soaker. • Can be composted and returned to Mother Nature when you are finished with it. • AMA denotes AMA Herbal GOTS certified colours- ask if you wish to see their certificates • Plain dye indigo and other colours have an irregular surface- traditionally all over bold block print/ mud resist was used to disguise this. We embrace it as part of the ‘handmade’ feel – you need to consider carefully if it works for you.


Costing… • Big question. • No standard answer… • Each plant material comes at a different cost per kilo, each fabric is a different weight per metre • Contact us and we can quote for you, when we know depth of colour and plant dye to be used. • colour@the-stitching-project.com • Note- approx 5 m is maximum length we can dye at one time.

Sustainability We believe that it's important to be as transparent as possible about ethical, sustainable and eco friendly practices. We're not perfect, and there are still elements of our business that we would like to make even more eco-friendly, but below is a list of practices we currently employ to minimise our impact on the earth: • We believe in fair pay for quality work, we largely work with rural women who are home based and believe the opportunity for them to earn a fair income will positively impact on their lives and the health and education of their children • We promote and use sustainable & fair trade cloths. For most of our handloom fabrics we have a direct relationship with the weaver families who produce them. • We design for longevity, not conforming to short term, seasonal trends. • We use water based, solvent free inks. Hand block printing uses little water in clean-up. • We use natural indigo and iron black prints. • We are very careful to use or sell on all offcuts from the stitching workshop.
