How to Buy

The online shop is updated with new items (roughly) once a month. Each collection is ready-to-ship, and available on a first come, first served basis. What you see in the shop reflects the current stock. If the shop is empty, it means the current collection is sold out, and the shop is closed while new pieces are being created.

Dyed pieces are created using low-impact, low-water process procoin dyes. Each color is measured, then blended, by hand - never using dye blends straight from manufacture. This careful process helps to minimize dye spotting, and maximize the variety in hues. Each one is so much more striking in person, and you may even notice a shift in color depending on what kind of lighting you’re in. Each listing will contain photos of pieces in soft lighting that best show their hues; however, it is not unusual for hand dyed colors to surprise you in person! If the depth of hand dyed hues isn’t for you, try a piece in solid black ~ everything looks good in black, especially you.
