Botanical Dyeing Lotti ~ For The Love of Earth.
For Oasis, Spell and the Gypsy Collective worked with a small, family run dye house to create some custom botanical dyes. The Lotti pieces have a softly neutral, almost oatmeal tone, which we’re loving this season!
They’re dyed with bark from the local Kiker tree, native to the North West of India, you may find small remnants of the bark which gave its colour on the finished garment (the remnants simply brush away leaving no mark). Botanical dyeing is a very new process for Spell and we’re still ironing out the kinks, so bare with us. Instead of seeing these small remnants of bark as faults, they are embracing their eco-idiosyncratic nature and celebrating the quirks that remind us just how close to nature the garment is! For the love of Earth indeed!
