Here at Luna & Rose, whenever we need to dye a fabric to get our dreamy colour palettes perfected, we choose to use Natural Plant Dyes. It might cost us x6 the price vs using a chemical, synthetic dye but for us, that's a no brainer and we're pretty sure your health & skin thanks us for it too!
BUT, there is a reason why not every brand dyes with plant based natural dyes and the expensive cost is just one of them. As you know, we're huge fans of transparency here at Luna & Rose so we wanted to share with you, all that we know about our plant dyes so you too can be more informed with making your purchasing decisions.
The Pro's and Con's of dying with Natural Dyes:
To us, dying with nature is an absolute no-brainer - Less toxins on your body when you wear your clothing each day, much less environmental impact and Zero waste water being right at the top of our reasons why.
You can see our complete process of how we create our dyes colours with plants in the below video.

There's a whole lot of chat out there about 'Organic Cotton' but is there really a difference between Conventional Cotton & Organic Cotton? Oh YOU BETCHA there is! And we're here to help shed some light....
Laying it down, Organic Cotton is planted, produced and manufactured Organically with zero use of pesticides, fertilisers or GMO seeds to make the plants grow faster. It is also produced in toxic-free dirt.
Plastic MEGA un-fantastic. We're all well aware that the plastic fantastic phenomenon of 60's and 70's was never well researched or thought through... Or maybe it was and the convenience of this miracle material and the financial gains that were able to be made from this new material well outweighed the negatives. Fast forward 50 years and now our planet is suffering, majorly! This month we're focussing on 'Plastic Free July' and sharing ways in which you can simply decrease exposure and use of this material from your daily habits.
