About

One of a Kind Scarves and Home Decor imprinted with actual leaves and naturally dyed by hand.

My exploration into natural dyeing and eco printing started as a labor of love. I saw a contact print and thought what a lovely gift a scarf imprinted with leaves from my parents farm would make for my mother and sisters. The organic nature of creating something functional and beautiful resonated with me. It's an ever evolving journey into color, chemistry and plant behavior. What started as a labor of love has turned into a passion.
Eco printing has turned my type A personality upside down. Giving up control over the end product, taking risks with color and accepting whatever nature gives is so outside my comfort zone. I should say was outside my comfort zone, now the slow development of color and the surprise inside each bundle is a journey all by itself. The process from collecting material to unbundling each scarf feeds my creative soul. As the seasons change so do the leaves and the colors they produce ensuring each scarf is a unique piece of art.
