From maxi dresses to culottes, fall for The Natural Dyer’s lovingly and sustainably made clothing.
Inspired by the “make do and mend” era of the 1950s, this conscious clothing brand uses traditional methods to solve the modern problem of excessive waste in the fashion industry.
Whether it’s secondhand garments, off-cuts, end of roll fabrics or other would-be waste textiles, they give a new lease of life to old materials by transforming them into beautiful clothes. Often the pre-loved garments they use also date back to the 1950s, including wedding dresses and suits.
All pieces are made to order by hand, in true slow fashion style.
As you might have guessed, The Natural Dyer only uses natural dyes, which they make from foraged materials and recycled rainwater. As well as being an eco-friendly alternative to commercial dyes, this means they can then be 100% certain and transparent about the amount of materials and water that go into making their clothes.
