A Love Story of Giving
Palm-printing is one of our latest fun experiment in marrying nature and design. It's where we use real palm leaves from our garden to create the pattern. Because palm does not release color pigment, we simply enjoy its iconic tropical pattern onto our clothes. Made even better with the use of healthy plant dyes. Plant dyeing is using natural dyes that are extracted from fresh plants and mixed by hand instead of synthetic chemicals made by machines. Good for the health: Safer than synthetic dyes as they don't contain chemicals harmful to health. Good for the ecosystem: As plants can be regrown, they’re a renewable, low-cost source. Good for the heart: Bringing nature onto your clothes using living plants around us make us more present with the environment and appreciate what's around us.
