Care: Fabric dyed with botanical is free of toxins and harsh chemicals that can pollute the environment and irritate the skin. The beauty of natural dyes is they are a living color but they do need a little extra care to maintain. Natural dyes are pH sensitive and sensitive to extreme prolonged sun exposure.
Like a beloved pair of jeans, natural dye will fade overtime. This cycle is part of the beauty of this ancient medium and I hope you will embrace the variations that occur.
Following these tips will prolong the life of your garment, which was created with slow and deliberate care.
Do not wash often.
Wash in cold water with delicate cycle or hand-wash.
All commercial detergents are designed to remove natural dye—the color is basically a stain. Use a gentle or pH-neutral detergent such as Eucalan, Woolite, or Orvus Paste that does not contain baking soda --that will shift colors.
Dry away from the sun. Wash items alone or with like colors.
In between working in New York City and raising two little ones, Amanda (the mastermind behind a_db botanical color) spends her nights channeling the natural beauty of plants into colors for your home! Her dyes are made from things foraged in the woods or everyday kitchen staples scraps-- avocado pits, onion skins, carrot tops--as well as organic dye extracts: logwood and indigo--and minerals. These dyes produce imperfect, rich textures and tones that cannot be found in industrial dyes that are often full of toxic chemicals.
