We use a range of plant materials, insects, and pigments to create our natural dye clothing. If you enjoy an appearance that can range from a tie-dyed effect to darker and lighter spots then Natural Dyes are a great choice. Natural dyes do tend to fade faster then the fiber reactive dyes but they have amazing wellness benefits and are hands down the most eco friendly. Plant dyes can easily be bleached by natural soaps, deodorants, and detergents and as such require more effort and mindfulness when worn and laundered. Acidic foods such as orange juice can remove natural dye colors if spilled on the naturally dyed fabric.
Natural dyes are as unpredictable as nature itself, so if you are looking for a deep saturation with little to no imperfections and easy wash and go we recommend choosing a Low Impact dye color over our natural dyes.
The Beauty of Hand Dyed Garments
Inconsistency and variations of color is to be expected and part of the beauty of hand dying organic fabric. This means our colors will shift from dye bath to dye bath and from season to season, based on the specific conditions when each fiber was grown. It is truly our joy to honor the Nature of Nature by allowing her to speak through our clothing in this way. Thanks so much for joining us and we hope you enjoy your one of a kind Gaia Garment.
