About BlumenRoots

Sales 142
On Etsy since 2019

A Northwest design studio offering hand crafted, heirloom quality, naturally dyed goods.

Blumen Roots was started as a way to share high quality products with mother nature in mind. By offering small batch goods dyed with plant-based materials, customers can rest assured that Blumen Roots makes thoughtful decisions throughout the dyeing process to reduce our impact on the environment.

Giving back is also a key part of our mission, so Blumen Roots is committed to donating a portion of its sales to humanitarian causes. Throughout 2019, Blumen Roots will donate a meal from each purchase to the World Food Programme, a non-profit organization committed to ending hunger, achieving food security and improving nutrition in countries around the world. Join us to help break the cycle of poverty and hunger.

Here are some of the ways our decisions support a more sustainable textile industry:
> Ethically foraged plants and locally grown flowers serve as the bulk of Blumen Roots materials.
> All plant materials are composted at the end of the dyeing process, making their way back into the soil to enrich our flower beds and gardens.
> We use 100% recycled padded mailers, wrapping paper, and boxes, which are all are reusable, compostable and/or biodegradable after they get to you.
> Natural tannins are used whenever possible including rhubarb, avocado, and black walnut hulls.
> All dye baths are used until clear and remaining water is poured back into flower beds and mordant baths are reused at least four times to reduce waste and water. When finished, mordant baths are disposed of properly.
> Well-calculated dye baths and a resourceful rinsing station reduces the amount of water used to remove extra dye.
> Environmentally friendly scouring detergents and ph neutral soaps are used for scouring and after-wash, which helps keep harmful chemicals out of our water systems.
> Energy efficient front load washing machine aids the scouring process, while saving energy and water.
