Plant Dyed Jacket - Box Mistletoe
Alana of What—Makes hunts for natural fibre second-hand pieces and then plant-dyes them using natural botanical dyes she prepares herself using locally sourced plant material. The resulting garments are genuine one-offs and carry the special properties of the plants used within them.
All garments are dyed using solar power and rain water, with the whole process taking around 4-5 days per garment.
This linen shirt has been plant-dyed using Box Mistletoe leaves from Alana's backyard. The plant materials are simmered in a large pot and the garment added to absorb the colour.
This cropped jacket features an open style and collar. 55% linen and 45% viscose.
