Another mountain of leftover cotton leaving our workshop to get repurposed by Our Social Fabric. Check out their next sale on Nov 20th! #oursocialfabric #osf #reuse #repurposed #bedvancouver #theheartofkits
All full day’s work, all packed up and ready to head to the store. Will any of these end up on your bed?
Our sheets have no packaging and we pack them up in reuseable bins to bring them to bed so this cuts out a lot of waste.
Before they go to the store we give them a full once over. Hand-dyeing doesn’t always go according to plan so sometimes they end up ‘on sale’ as mistints, a great way to pick up a bargain in bed!
Even the dryer lint is beautiful at bed!
Fresh from the dryer. Just like all our sheets they’re preshrunk and will get softer and better with each wash and dry.
Everything gets another wash after it’s dyed to deal with any excess dye that hasn’t bound to the cotton.
All of the sheets are dyed by hand in small batches, just about the size of a set of bedding, which is why there can be slight variation from batch to batch.
So my trusty assistants look kinda bored with it all today, of course they’ve seen it all before.
Here’s one secret recipe ready to go… (you didn’t think we’d really give it away did you?)
