Ko-ke is moss in Japanese. Ko-ke(苔) has always brought her inspiration. She has made this green colour is part of her own natural dye colour palette through her researches. Yellow colour made with food waste (onion skin), blue colour made with indigo and she makes green colour mix of yellow and blue.
The garments are hand dyed with natural dyes. Please wash by hand separately. The natural Dyes may rub off on your clothes and hands. Variations/unevenness of colour and gradual fading are a characteristic of this type of garment dyeing.
-Dye, repair service-
She hopes that her garments will be worn and enjoyed for many years. Therefore, she provides a dye and repair service to support you. Natural dyes fade and lose their colours quicker when compared with synthetic dyes, and if there are any holes, she can amend them using weaving techniques, patchwork techniques and others. All her garments are compostable as all materials used are natural.
Her collection has also a focus on slow fashion and fair trade as opposed to mass production. Based in this concept, her garments are all carefully handmade and hand-dyed in England, and she only makes her garments by order instead of having a stock of garments. As she gets her fabrics from antique/vintage markets she may not be able to have the same fabrics shown on her samples and will make your ordered garment with fabrics of similar value and characteristics, minumum in 2-3 weeks. We will contact you how long will take your order after you purchased. We cannot accept cancelles and returns as we make garment for only orders.
