Guess what we’re selling…

So we realized that it was about time for us to make nontoxic indigo dyed undergarments as these fabrics tend
to be closest to our body in sensitive areas. Below is a matching set for women.

Madder matters

We are super excited that our first year of growing our madder root has turned out a success! Madder root is
what the red coats used for their red. It makes an alizarin red or a Turkey Red. The root is what is used for
harvesting as a dye. Patience is a virtue though, as it takes 2-3 years to mature into usable dye.

Just found this book at the Book Trader’s in olde city and am excited to read it!!
