WHY TO CHOOSE OUR CRAFTS? Only narural and safe materials are the best we can give to our children. Natural dyes are a renewable resource, used mordant is safe, and leftovers from the dyeing process can be put on the compost.
Herbal dyeing is made by hand, in a small quantity, with the kind help of nature. It's an eco-friendly dyeing process without added harmful chemicals, just plants, and light mordant alum. All dyeing works are done in a small studio in the Baltics Sea region, Riga.
WHAT KIND OF SILK IS IT? The silk comes from a German supplier, which produces silk fabrics in China and India. The fiber is boiled, then spun and woven, and after weaving boiled once again.
All scarves are already hand-rolled and handsewn, so maybe some small deviations in the final size of a scarf - due to the dyeing process some shrinkage may occur.
