More Kids’ Clothing on my Website

New children’s shibori pieces are here!  Each bespoke piece is created using natural, non-toxic materials, sometimes even using natural dyes I have created and used on my silk scarves.  The “dots and dashes” dress below features a natural green dye created from the ivy growing in my backyard.  The dress itself is made by young women in Tiraque, Bolivia, working in their own micro-enterprise created through grants, private donations, and a partnership with Dharma Trading Co.
