Our Bundle-Dye Kit is an enjoyable, creative medium for your therapeutic art exploration, whether you're a beginner who wants to give a try at natural dyeing with plants or a more experienced dyer who longs for a plant dye session for yourself.
Inside our Bundle-Dye Kit, you will have:
- Silk-Tencel Scarf
- Symplocos plant mordant*
- Dye Plant to make a dye bath (see option)
- Assortment of dried leaves from available plants in our garden
- Reusable String
- Repurposed Wooden Stick
(*) Our Symplocos plant mordant is sourced from the Bebali Foundation / Threads of Life, who have been working with rural weavers, artisans, dyers, farmers and ethnobotanists for three decades. Their Symplocos powder is made of sustainably harvested windfallen Symplocos leaves, where the forest is taken care by local villagers in Flores.
Why We Made This Kit
In our daily practice, we sincerely hope to contribute and share what we are blessed with to others, no matter how small it is. We've been very proactive in learning, teaching, sharing and promoting artisanal crafts(wo)manship and natural dyeing through interactive exhibitions, workshops, and retreats.
This inspired us to present a new medium to you, to recite your poetic passage with the gift of earth colors made of plants at your fingertip, as you reflect, redefine, redesign, and restart your way of living, loving and learning especially in this transformative time, by bringing our creative process to you through our Bundle-Dye Kit that you can co-create with at home.
