Inspired by nature

Vision | Values | Natural Dye Process

Vision

Wear Tinctoria was born out of the Covid quarantine with an idea to create naturally dyed garments that allow us to keep nature close, even when we're confined to our homes. Genderless garments are designed for effortless, timeless style that break the cycle of fast fashion and will be treasured for a lifetime. 

My goal for the brand is to enable sustainable living that regenerates our daily relationship with nature. 

To this end, I believe natural dyeing can be used as a platform from which to:

 

1.

Stimulate environmental protection and regenerative agriculture by demonstrating the value of natural biodiversity and sourcing materials from responsible producers. 

3.

Promote fair labor practices by sourcing fabrics and dye stuff from certified suppliers, working with local Portuguese 

seamstresses and valuing my own time.

5.

Engage in sustainable supply chains by sourcing sustainable fabrics who's inputs are grown on organic farms, increasingly using local dye materials and valuing local labor.

2.

Reduce consumption by using high quality fabrics to make unique pieces made to be treasured for a lifetime. At the end of it's life cycle, natural garments can be  upcycled as scrap fabrics or composted.

4.

Practice Zero Waste strategies by strategically using fabrics, repurposing scrap paper, dyeing with kitchen waste (when available), and exclusively using biodegradable, plastic-free packaging.

6.

Stimulate women-friendly economic activities in marginalized communities that leverages local resources and promotes environmental conservation.
