Just so lovely! The tiny pressed flower inside was a sweet touch! Love it!

About

Hi! I'm Tamara, a natural dye artist and a maker from the East Coast of Canada.

Oake Living started one night while reading a tutorial on making flower presses. I was inspired by the idea and decided to make my own presses with the screen-printing skills I learned at art school. Throughout the process of creating, marketing and selling my presses, I fell in love with the ethics and potential of natural dying and the community of sustainable makers. Though my brand will change as I do, today Oake Living centers on my love of natural patterns and dyes and my excitement and curiosity for how both can be incorporated into the home.

My design style captures the parts of nature we aren't always quick to see; I'm inspired by the way bark peels off trees to reveal an underside of texture, how the sand has millions of tiny geometric shapes, and how flowers give us the most beautiful colours.

I'm drawn to colours, patterns and textures and I use almost 100% natural, organic and raw materials.
