Naturally-Dyed Fiber Art Handmade in Vermont
Homegrown, Locally-Foraged, Sustainably-Sourced Color and Unique Designs
In the Meadow Lane Macrame Dye Garden, we grow dozens of plants and flowers that generously give their amazing colors for our creations. The colors are carefully extracted and used to dye cotton and hemp string as well as fabric and even wooden beads. We also forage locally in Vermont for various nuts, seeds and wildflowers that can lend their natural colors. Occasionally we utilize natural materials found in our home kitchen, like avocado seeds and tumeric. Finally, in rare instances, we reach out to small botanical dye businesses using sustainable practices to help us achieve a particular color.
