The only thing more natural than our new threads is your birthday suit! Discover the beauty of our cotton, dyed with natural plant based dyes, and foot loomed by skilled Art(isans) in the highlands of Guatemala! 

Each lot color is unique because there are no chemical color formulas! The cotton is boiled in the plant dye from ten to twenty minutes or when the artisan decides is a beautiful shade, and then is rinsed in cold water with banana tree bark to set the color. The water used to rinse the skein is then use to water their garden. No waste and no pollution!

How we make them

Hand weaving is the most carbon-neutral way of producing fashion materials, and our foot-loomed cotton is ideal for the minimalist in all of us. Weaved in the highlands of Guatemala by Maya master weavers who use century old techniques that cannot be duplicated by machines. Guatemala is the motherland of foot-loomed textiles. For centuries, the beautiful hands of women, AND men, have used the back-strap and foot-loom as their writing instruments to record their history, their dreams, and love of their country. Our natural cotton is everything you want for you and your family, soft, natural, and chemical free.

Handmade by Artisans

Artisanal products differ from fast fashion products in that they are made in a traditional or non-mechanized way. Artisanal products are hand-crafted by skilled cobblers in small quantities with high quality and design in mind; using techniques that cannot be replicated by machines!
