About

Environmental Importance & Beauty Translated into Utilitarian Objects

I am extremely enthralled with the ECOLOGY of this planet, the chemistry behind extracting color from plants, and the daily lives and life cycles of non-human organisms. I am a researcher, explorer, illustrator, and textile maker.

My home and studio are located in Savannah, GA, where I make small batches of screen printed and naturally dyed utilitarian objects and accessories using processes that are as low impact as possible. My dyed fabrics go through a series of scouring, mordanting, bundling, waiting, washing, printing, waiting, steaming, washing, ironing, and sometimes batiking, indigo dipping, neutralizing, washing, ironing, and finally, hand hemming/machine sewing. The plants I use are either grown by me, gathered locally, or are food scraps (except for indigo…for now).
I am a forever student of my work.

Oh, and I have a very strong desire to save the world from human destruction.

Care instructions

Scarves (& all items hand hemmed & made of silk):

Hand wash in warm-cold water with a gentle soap. Hang dry.
Steam iron. Some wrinkles may not come completely out as a result of the dyeing process.
Store in dark area. Because items are dyed with natural materials, items may fade due to excessive light and washing. This, too, is a natural process.

Bags & Pouches:

Spot clean, dry flat.
A note about stains: enjoy them! these fibers are made up of plant stains to begin with!
