Christine Lewis Studio

Christine Lewis is a botanical dyer and maker. She makes all of her products by hand, using the slow process of extracting natural dyes from barks, flowers and vegetables. Her interest in natural dyeing was sparked by an article about ‘food meeting fashion’ by Sasha Duerr. How could something so beautiful be made with kitchen waste and garden plants? Armed with some old pots and pans, a camping stove and a bunch of carrot tops, Christine created her first dye pot. That was back in 2012. What started as a hobby is now an obsession. She created a studio in her garden next to where the dyestuff grows, and there she does all of her dyeing, drying and making.
