GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK:
DAINTY DYSTOPIA‘s BOTANICAL DYE STUDIO
At Dainty Dystopia, green is neither a colour nor a political issue, but the young label‘s central fashion statement.In their Botanical Dye Studio, everything revolves around the finishing of sustainable natural textiles: silk, cotton and linen are dyed in bunches or printed with fresh flowers, leaves and dried dye materials.In their Botanical Dye Studio, everything revolves around the finishing of sustainable natural textiles: silk, cotton and linen are dyed in bunches or printed with fresh flowers, leaves and dried dye materials. With know-how and passion, unique pieces are created, hand-dyed with incomparable botanical compositions.
All components and raw materials used are naturally derived and harmless to humans, animals and plants throughout the entire process.
On this basis, Dainty Dystopia manufactures its own products to order as well as special one-off pieces for private customers. In addition, the studio also supports designers and artists in the development and realisation of their Botanical Dye ideas.
Those who want to get creative themselves will find their perfect first project in the label‘s Botanical Dye Kits. The DIY sets for the home contain all the necessary materials and guide you easily and safely into the world of natural colours and patterns with step-by-step instructions and video tutorials.
Dainty Dystopia also likes to share its fascination for botanical colours live: as a booked host of dyeing courses or as part of concept store events, at self-organised workshops and creative retreats – the team not only imparts knowledge, but creates inspiring experiences.
DAINTY DYSTOPIA will be participating in Gallery FASHION & Shoes for the first time with its own stand and is looking forward to introducing you to the universe of natural colours:
BOTANICAL DYE SESSIONS
live on Saturday, 24 & Sunday, 25 July
duration: 20 – 30 minutes each
SESSION #01 :: BUNDLE DYEING
Bundle Dyeing is a process in which dyeing material is laid out on the textile, then tied into a bundle and placed in a steam bath. Experience how unique patterns are created through arrangement and folding techniques. Of course, you will also learn one or two practical tricks.
SESSION #02 :: COLOUR SHIFTING WITH NUANCERS
In this session you will be initiated into the secrets of pigment modification, the processes of which have an almost alchemical character. Like magic, colours change – often completely unexpectedly – under the influence of different solutions.
Even apart from the Botanical Dye Sessions, a visit to the DAINTY DYSTOPIA stand is worthwhile, where dyeing takes place throughout. Look over the shoulder during production and be inspired by the world of natural dyes.
