Vintage Silk Button Down
Short sleeve, button down silk shirt sourced from one of my favorite second hand shops. Perfect for layering over dresses or a tank and shorts. 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 or variations in color are part of the natural, hand-dyed process.
