Inspired by the genderless and versatile tunics sold at the markets in Thailand. Made from lightweight and airy bamboo silk for casual, effortless style. Ecoprinted with Eucalyptus leaves.
Eucalyptus trees are native to Australia but can be found everywhere in Portugal. They have even been classified as an invasive species here. They grow incredibly quickly, outcompete other plants for water, and burn easily causing many wildfires. Eucalyptus is a very accessible dye plant since the bark (which peels off naturally) can be used for browns and the leaves provide a range of yellow, coral, and orange colors.
Any inconsistencies in color are part of the natural, hand dyed process and add to the dynamic beauty of plant pigments.
