Natural Dye variants 

    • Indigo is among the oldest dyes to be used for textile dyeing. We use a limited amount of locally grown indigo as well as commercially purchased indigo powder when creating our indigo vats. 
    • Madder is an heirloom dye plant that has been loved throughout history for the orange and red hues it produces. The root is the part of the plant used to create a dye bath.
    • Coreopsis is a flower grown and harvested in our own dyer's garden at Birch Point Farms in Leelanau County.

*Natural and Botanical dyeing is a labor of love for us; the colors are dependent on many characteristics of the soil, season, and timing. We are unable to dye at a production level with the natural dyes and instead will make available the bounty of each season as we create it.
