What’s more exciting, the fact that these botanically dyed linen napkins have a million and one different uses or the fact that they’ve been created using our unique, sustainable and ethical creation process? We think that they’re equally as exciting and want to hear what you think of them once you’ve introduced your very own set of Dahlia Linen Napkins into your home…

Our decorative textiles - The story behind the art...
Wondering how our decorative textiles are created?
They set aside avocado seeds, beetroot skins, cabbage leaves, blueberries, onion skins and coffee grinds for us (these are all by-products of their produce and dishes so if we didn’t take them off their hands, they would be sent to landfill) and we take these items back to our workshop to create our natural dyes. We utilise a large, second hand pot filled with boiling water and for the shade of ‘dahlia purple’ that we use on our napkins, we use a mixture of blueberries, beetroot skins and red cabbage leaves.
The dye takes two hours to create and then the linen is required to soak for up to 12 hours so that the colour properly bonds to the fabric. Once each napkin has been dyed, we hang them out in the sunshine to dry and then hem the edges with the sewing machine inside our workshop. Once all the napkins are complete, we hand fold them individually and then set them aside on one of our workshop shelves. We only create small batches of coloured fabric at a time (as much as the dye will allow) and then compost the leftover ingredients so that the nutrients can be returned to the soil.
