Small footprint, big heart.
In an industry largely driven by consumerism and mass-production, we're aspiring to instil change through time-honoured artistry and small-batch creation. We choose to work with sustainable fibres, industry "waste", botanical dyes and other organic elements wherever possible to create unique pieces that are made to last.
We pack all of your beautiful orders in the most considered packaging possible to ensure your delivery has the smallest environmental footprint it can.
All of our cards are printed on linen. We use acid free tissue paper, water activated tape and home compostable bags.
Our boxes and shipping labels are biodegradable and our delivery partners provide a carbon natural service.
Please help us see through our mission by reusing, composting or recycling your packaging when it reaches the end of its journey.

Cost of Colour
Each year, the textile industry produces around 80 billion garments with some mills using up to 200 tonnes of water per ton of dyed fabric. This in turn makes textile dyeing the second largest pollutant of clean water globally, after agriculture. During the colouring process, a large percentage of the dye does not bind to the fabric and is discarded. With thousands of synthetic chemicals being used to treat and brighten our clothes, this renders groundwater in some countries largely undrinkable and severely impacts the wellbeing of workers and local communities. The hard reality is that this is an ongoing cycle with approximately 6 tonnes of clothing going to landfill every 10 minutes in Australia alone.
Through the use of botanical dyes we are able to pursue a natural and sustainable alternative to create beautiful textiles without negatively impacting the environment. Our dye process is done by hand in small batches and is completely free from toxins and synthetic chemicals, using only natural pigments from the Earth. This means at the end of their lifecycle, our pieces can return back to from where they came.
