Well made and dye is nice but don’t really like material. Thought would be soft but it’s not.

Hi, sorry to hear that the fabric wasn't as soft as you were hoping for. Thanks for the feedback, and I'll make sure to update my descriptions to be more clear. The fabric will soften up significantly over time with wash and wear, so hopefully it'll be more to your likely in time. Best, Kate

The patterns and gradations on this scarf are beyond beautiful. Wearing handmade is where it’s at!
Thanks for the super fast shipping.
Reducing and Re-using, One Item at a Time
Who needs fast and cheap when you can have one of a kind heirlooms?
More than *15 million tons* of textile waste are generated in the United States alone each year, an amount that’s doubled over the past 20 years, according to the finance website The Balance. Fast fashion also has a harmful effect on human lives due to the poor working conditions in garment factories in Bangladesh and elsewhere.
My goal is to take unwanted things out of the waste cycle and give them new life. To preserve what already exists by making it more beautiful. With the help of all natural dyes, and centuries-old techniques I create new heirlooms out of unwanted textiles. Each piece I create is a journey of intuition and experimentation. I scavenge and hunt through yard sales, estate sales, and thrift stores to find forgotten little gems that just need a little re-imagining and a lot of love. I always use ALL NATURAL fibers and dyes for my products, so you can be sure that they are safe for your family.
The majority of my products are also vegan because they are made from plant fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, hemp...), and plant dyes (Indigo, Turmeric, Iron Oxide, Madder Root, and more) - yay! Occasionally I will up-cycle a vintage piece that is wool or silk, and those are always clearly marked as such.
