Gorgeously roomy pockets are hidden in the side seams of these versatile dresses. Wear it on its own in warm weather or layer it up for winter over a base layer of a fitted knit top and leggings.  Due to the process of eco-printing, no two are the same so you'll always be wearing a unique and original piece when you buy from me.

Eco-Printing

Eco-printing is a method of transferring the natural shape, patterns and pigments of leaves onto fabrics using natural mordants and assists. It relies on the alchemy of nature rather than chemical inks. I gather the leaves from my own garden and local area before throughtfully and carefullyplacing them onto fabric to create unique prints. Each piece of fabric I create is as unique as the plants I gather the leaves from - no two pieces are exactly the same.

 

Upcycled Cotton Blends

In an effort to reduce waste and find alternative sources of fabrics I followed New Zealand's luxury hotel supply chain to a local supplier of their linens. Once these fabrics have even the smallest of marks or imperfections they are removed from circulation and are deemed waste. I then purchase these items from my New Zealand supplier and carefully cut, print and dye them, making them into garments to extend their life-span. These items are all cotton-rich and have a minimum of 50% cotton content.

 

Sustainability

Each piece I make is designed, naturally dyed (and/or printed) and made from ethically sourced fabrics, in Wairarapa, NZ. I use fabric off-cuts to make smaller items or for packaging, where possible.

 

Packaging

Each piece I make is carefully wrapped and sent in a biodegradable post bag.
