Chemical dyes are extremely toxic and cause huge amounts of pollution at every stage of their production and use.
Ingredients in chemical dyes are responsible for huge amounts of pollution of soil and water, this goes beyond those involved in the industry and affects people living in the whole region.
Little textile production occurs in the UK or across Europe, so we become
increasingly divorced from the process and problems inflicted and awareness
Connect more closely with nature, join us for a small scale DIY alternative to fast fashion, and have fun in the process.
