Waxflwer Dye Works uses 100% natural dye extracts and raw dyestuff to create bold, prismatic prints & patterns on natural fibers.
Bundle dyeing is a technique in which fresh and dried raw dyestuff (plants and insects) are applied directly to specially prepared fabric. The fabric and dyestuff is then rolled into a bundle, tightly wrapped with string, and steamed for several hours. When heated, the dyestuffs release pigments which bind to the fabric, creating a one-of-a-kind contact print.
All of our fabric is dyed with colors that come directly from the earth. We use a variety of fresh and dried dye plants (flowers, wood shavings, leaves, nuts, etc), as well as sustainably harvested Cochineal and Lac. We source locally whenever possible, both by foraging and supporting small growers.
