Plant based dye

For the Spring '18 collection of our ethically produced T-shirts we've come up with a new idea!

Not only do we focus on empowerment and Fairtrade, but we're concerned about our planet, too. This is why we teamed up with Alchemilla, a small plant based dyeing workshop in Oberhofen overlooking the stunning Lake of Thun and the mountains of the Bernese Oberland region. Alchemilla provides meaningful work for people with special needs.

Alchemilla has over 30 years of plant based dyeing experience. That's why they really know how to make beautiful colours that are colour-fast. Garment dyeing creates a more distressed or washed look that is very unique and adds a lot of interesting character to a T-Shirt. Because of the nature of pigments, the colours can vary slightly with each round of dyeing. In addition, the dyed cotton changes the coulour of reflected light due to different absorption.

Check out the Spring '18 collection on our site very soon!
