Thanks for stopping by! I'm Vicki owner of Little Eco Folk. My botanically hand dyed gifts are inspired by and infused with local nature and Aroha. Plant-based dyes create stunning colors that shift, change, and come alive in natural sunlight. My botanical palettes are hand-mixed from sustainably sourced organically homegrown and locally foraged plant materials. Nature is perfectly imperfect and unpredictable with no two dye baths the same. As the botanical dye interacts with the fabric, unique markings and colour variations occur—a process just like nature itself, which should be celebrated. This makes each a slow crafted, individual piece of art.
I reuse fabric where I can and because our dye is produced seasonally from homegrown and locally foraged foliage (zero dye miles) I am able to dye waste free.
I believe we all have a responsibility to live our lives as sustainably as possible.
I bring sustainability into every corner of my business, from the materials I use, to the way I package our items, to the way I want my business to grow.
All my botanically dyed items are zero waste, and made with the Earth in mind - Gifts that don't cost the Earth. Sustainability is at the wairua of what I do.
