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.

You hear us talking about our 'Plant Dyed Apparel' but what does that actually mean and how on earth does one dye clothing with plants you ask!? I know, it's a buzzy concept and one that I too couldn't quite believe when I first heard about it either. But guess what? This is where it all started! Plants are where the original colours started... and we are here to bring it back - no chemicals added!
My Mother in law first made this for me many moons ago and it was instant love at first bite! Tangy yet fresh, more-ish yet healthy. This lemon tomato pasta has all the ingredients to warrant being on the weekly meal schedule without too much hassle. Hey, it's even good enough to wow your pals for dinner on Friday night! Serve it up with a fresh garden salad or opt for a carbo load with some toasted ciabatta with fresh garlic butter? Mmmm hmmm. If this doesn't have you hungry for dinner... I'm not sure we can be friends. Bon Appetit friends x
