Plant-Dyed Tote & Bucket

Made using natural, plant-based dyes and 100% cotton fibers, the plant-dyed collection includes a pullover and short set made in vintage knitting machines and a crocheted tote bag and matching bucket hat.

The green is dyed using Mate herb, the yellow with onion peel, the brown with wood bark, and the sand color with pecan shells. This is a tedious and time consuming practice, but the results are exquisite.
