*Please contact me before ordering if you need items by a specific date*


************************************ C O L O R S ****************************************
Items are hand dyed using low impact, fiber reactive dyes, with the exception of NATURAL (undyed fabric in its natural state) and BLACK (comes from the supplier already dyed with low impact dye, for a true black). In most fabrics NATURAL is somewhat sheer and will need a light colored under layer.

Variations in color and consistency are characteristics of hand dying, and can vary from dye bath to dye bath/dye lot to dye lot. For matching colors among different clothing pieces it's best to order in the same fabric to be dyed in the same bath. If a more even outcome is desired I offer machine dying. Please email me for details before ordering.

**I always offer re-dyes/over dyes if your color didn't turn out as expected. Contact me for details**

About

Dress for your adventure

Speak (eco chic) at louderthanwords.etsy.com offers one of a kind, limited edition and custom made clothing from hemp and organic fibers.

My original designs are made with love by hand.

Being a mama of three rough and tumble boys has helped me embrace an adventurous spirit in life, from the everyday to once in a lifetime. I like to keep my designs romantic, playful, functional and simple to allow your own light to come shining through. Inspiration comes from nature, music, history, poetry... where ever the Muses insist on being heard. Fabrics are hand dyed by me using low impact, fiber reactive dyes that are nontoxic.

I started making women and children's clothing and Hemp jewelry to sell at local boutiques in the mid-90's in my hometown in Idaho. My emphasis is on a rustic, woodland style while keeping it fresh. Comfort built in is a must. While I was pregnant with my first boy I gave my business an official name in 1999, continuing to sell locally and on the festival circuit, Sewing/designing has been in my life since my earliest memories, coming from a long line of crafty, stylish women and men. It's a passion that flows through the veins.

My BF and I sold our first handmade goods (Potato Head dolls: using our moms' nylon socks, a bit of stuffing, scraps of fabric, thread and needle) in early elementary school. They were a hit!

Check out my first Etsy shop naturalbluecloud.etsy.com, opened in 2007.

Additional policies and FAQs
**Any color choices, sizing information and other requests appropriate for customizing your garments should be added at checkout, in the Note to Seller box**


**Hand dyed goods are dyed by me using human power, in an effort to keep practices more sustainable. Please note: Hand dying is an art, not an exact science... Variations and inconsistencies are qualities of hand dyed items, and are meant to be celebrated in uniqueness. Colors can vary from dye bath to dye bath and dye lot to dye lot... "Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life"... but should in no way detract from the quality of construction of your garment.

RE-DYES/OVER-DYES are always offered if your color didn't turn out as expected. FOR MORE CONSISTENT COLOR I offer machine dying with an additional cost of $5 per color. Email me for details.

Hand dyed items should be washed separately for the first wash. Dye is "fixed" but some bleeding is possible. Color tones will mostly even out with laundering. Swatches are shown in hemp or hemp blend fabrics which hold dye in more saturated colors than higher cotton or Lycra content. I am happy to send out color swatches if requested for a general idea of available colors.
