A Love Story of Giving
At the start of 2020 we set out to marry design and nature through eco-printing so we have you embrace nature on your clothes. Eco-printing is an age-old technique where living plants are pressed onto fabrics, and then heated to transfer its shape, color and marks on the fabric. These contact prints are called “eco-prints.” To eco-print this Sari, we collaborated with husband-and-wife artisans, Hardi and Luspa who needed four days to complete this piece. They foraged the leaves around Bali with the shapes and pigments we chose to create this "Falling Leaves" pattern. After three hours of steaming, magic happened. The colors and shapes were revealed as we lifted every leaf off the unwrapped fabric. With nature doing the printing, we never know what we get. We learn to surrender, accept and be content. And the result is always groundbreaking.

- Care for long-lasting plant-dye: Cold hand wash or machine wash with like colors. Use eco-friendly or gentle detergent. Air dry in the shade or tumble dry low. Dry clean not recommended because natural dyes react to heavy synthetic chemicals. Plant dyed colors will fade if left in the sun for a long time and washed in hot water. Mend when torn.
