Hey friends here’s that project I’ve been working on! I made these dog bandanas, naturally dyed in rosemary or avocado, and stamped them myself. I’m selling them for $15 and 100% of the money will be donated to the Milo Foundation’s Fire Evacuation Fund. Their animal sanctuary was evacuated last week and so they need a lot of fosters (which Dot won’t allow) but they’re also helping evacuated pets find temporary homes. I’ve given money to the human charities, check back a couple of posts for specifics (I’m also adding undocufund.org to that list). But really wanted to do something for the animals affected by this as well. If you’d like one post the number below and then dm me your paypal or venmo info. P.s. I’m covering shipping so it’s a flat $15.💕 1. Rosemary I ❤️ Butts SOLD

This coming Friday, please join us!! As we head into fall, we at &CO Studio open our doors and invite you to join us for an evening of warm discussion, art--and snacks of course! Look forward to seeing work from Rebecca Laursen, Rene Allen, Jess Volk, Ellen Schweikert, Grace Prechtel, and Mattie Morton !
Mattie and Rene are new to show here at &CO, Rene hand carves beautiful wooden spoons and other vessels, and Mattie constructs and dyes organic cotton dresses and dyes them herself with locally foraged botanicals.
Wildflower Study ✨
Is the name of my recipe | experiment | results | data | endless recording and everything else natural - dye - related book 📖
One day, I will write it up real nice and put pretty pictures and share it with the world 🗺
Until then, I resume to my wildflower study. 🖋📝💙
Details, these pom poms are super soft and fluffy. I love this hanging, I think it needs a gold hanger...thoughts? Meanwhile I'm off to bunnings to get some timber for a couple of very very patient customers and also to make some height charts for the @hauscollectivedunsborough
Charles.... the bright golden silk cloth was dyed Saturday at my natural dyeing demo at the MS Craft Center in Ridgeland on 10/14/17. It is that beautiful rich color that I get from the Osage orange shavings you saved for me. A visitor asked to purchase one off the table. Oh, such color! ( FYI: Maclura pomifera has been known by a variety of common names in addition to Osage orange, including hedge apple, horse apple, bois d'arc, bodark, bow-wood, yellow-wood and mock orange).
Wedding bouquet dyed silk 💐 // So in love with how this dyed out! This surprising rich color came from using white petals, eucalyptus, baby's breath, & blush pink roses. The silk turned into a rusty color with pretty markings of bright yellow, deep orange, & dark brown. 💛

Totally in love with the shawl pattern @bmandarines designed for the October Pro-Verbial shipment. The name of the pattern is Plume. She used Even Tinier Annapurna in the exclusive club colorway, Autumn Light. Thank you Melody! 😘 #proverbial#verbfall2017
The results from yesterday's Natural Dye Workshop. A sampling of locally foraged color on cotton, hemp, silk, wool, and linen. All dyes were sourced within 50 miles of the farm. Nature's palette never ceases to amaze me.
Marigold dye update: it worked. Beautifully. 🌼Thanks, plants, for being so magical! (And thanks Twin Cities friends for passing along your end-of-season garden scraps!) #wasteisafailureoftheimagination#marigold
Velvet gloves, green, brown and gold tones..like the forest floor dappled with sunlight ☀️ I hand-dyed these beauties with nettle leaves and earl grey tea ☕️🌿 a fun experiment and I love the outcome

Last spring, artist Naomi Clark visited our Austin studio and painted two panels of Silk Noil with plant based pigments created in-house. Panel two, shown here, was created from an acacia catechu, henna, sandalwood and madder root based palette. The paint was set in the Texas sun and faded to a beautiful water color palette with washing. These panels have since been made into a limited edition run of Everyday Dresses that will be released alongside an incredible offering of Naomi's paintings, called The Rosa Files, and food inspired by Naomi's art created by @omiomi_kitchen at at Legion in San Francisco this Friday, October 20th. We'll reveal more about the process in the coming week ✨ artist: @naomisclark opening: @legion_shop
