We have partnered up with Kyle & Shaughessy Otsuji of Studio Sashiko on our first "Artist Edition" collaboration, and our very first hand dyed vintage inspired scrunchie.
We strive to create timeless accessories with a splash of personality, and this all-natural fabric and dye project checked every box. Instead of opting for more traditional and vibrant tie-dyes, we went for more neutral and subtle tones that will match with your go-to wardrobe staples.
The Otsuji's chose a Japanese hand-dye method called Shibori, which represents the variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and binding or knotting it before dying. It's a very deliberate and time-consuming technique and made for such a soft and beautiful look.
To get these delicate tones, avocado skins and pits have been used to dye our new favourite scrunchie, giving the fabric its soft, abstract pink hues against the organic cotton crepe fabric.
We're in love with the result and know you will be too.

Our fabrics are sourced from domestic suppliers with a focus on high quality, luxe designs. While some of our materials are well suited for repeat wash and dryer cycles, many are not. Please take care in reviewing the below instructions. It’s important to note that damage to an item resulting from an attempt to clean is the responsibility of the customer.
TIPS TO MAINTAIN GREATEST PRODUCT LONGEVITY
Play it safe
As a primary cleaning tip, we recommend spot cleaning as needed. We have also found that a Tide to Go Pen works well in most cases.
Spot cleaning not cutting it?
If your hair tie or scrunchie is really dirty, we recommend hand washing in cold to lukewarm water with a little shampoo or gentle detergent. Rinse thoroughly, squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry. If you must put it in the washing machine, we recommend putting it in a delicates bag, and washing on a delicate cycle with like colours. Lay flat to dry.
Note: All fabrics react differently to wear and washing. Both may result in some colour fading over time.
