Naturally Dyed Pullover

  • About

    Organic cotton pullover sweatshirt ecoprinted with coreopsis leaves, giant grevillea leaves, and tree of heaven leaves. 


    Coreopsis plants are a beautiful wildflower I grow on my balcony. They provide bright orange colors or dark greens depending on how the fabric has been treated. 


    Giant grevillea leaves come from the high school near my house. It is native to Australia but has been widely planted in streets and parks around Portugal. The leaves naturally shed and are easily found on the ground. 


    Tree of heaven is native to China and was introduced to Europe in the 1700's as a prized ornamental plant, but is now classified as an invasive species in Portugal. The plant can be used as herbal medicine, natural dye, and for paper making. 



    Material - 80% organic cotton and 20% recycled poliester.

  • Care

    Care for your naturally dyed clothing by:

    • Washing with pH neutral natural soap in cold water. Please note, the first time you wash the garment some extra dye might come out.  

    • Drying out of the sun.


    Botanical dyes are often referred to as living colour because of the way the shades mature with time.... depending on the dye used, the pigments will have varying sensitivity to sunlight and washing. Fabrics are treated before dyeing to ensure maximum fatness of the color, but years from now if you'd like to give new life to your garment, I encourage you to experiment with your own techniques.​
