Set of 2 Hand Dyed Tea Towels – Onion Skins
Only 1 left in stock
A set of two matching hand dyed cotton tea towels in mustard yellow.
The tea towels were naturally dyed with onion skins. The tea towel is made of 100% cotton and is very sturdy. Each is measured 28″ by 28″ and has a hang loop in the corner.
To create the pattern on the tea towel, I used a technique known as shibori. The fabric is tied to create different patterns. Each one is unique as it is handmade.
A set of coordinated tea towels would be a wonderful gift for your favorite family member or friend who loves to cook!
Colors derived from plant-based dyes are one of kind, each one imbued with a natural, earth-tone hue. Plants can impart a wide range of colors from subdued pastels to rich, deep jewel tones. Black hollyhock creates blueish greens. Yellow onion skin creates a gorgeous marigold orange. Avocado pit makes the softest pink. It’s a joy to discover what each plant offers and I’m constantly exploring and experimenting with the wide spectrum of colors possible.

Why natural dyes?
Natural dye is sustainable and is less harmful for the environment and our bodies. Modern synthetic dyes which are in most of our textiles and clothes are made of toxic chemicals. Studies have show that mass produced synthetic dyes pollute our waterways, harm wildlife, and may be linked to cancer.
Your support of makers and artisans reduces our reliance on mass consumerism, the biggest culprit of most of our environmental problems including extreme climate changes. Your support also helps to bring back lost traditions and skills such as natural dyeing. As we recover these traditions, we become more in tune with nature and with our community.
