Natural Colour Like Never Before

This magical and grounding process requires much time, patience, and awareness.

Botanicals, plant matter and non-toxic metals and minerals are namely the key ingredients to creating my one-of-a-kind garments, accessories and art pieces. By mindfully and carefully collecting flowers and leaves in natural landscapes without disrupting the health and growth of our local plants, or from local florists who provide me with their floral detritus,  I create unique patterns and prints through the natural dye process.

There are many different techniques, such as vat dyeing to achieve a solid hue, Shibori, the Japanese technique of folding and binding fabric prior to dyeing, eco-printing which achieves actually leaf impressions on fibre, or bundle dyeing with flowers, which obtains lovely runny, abstract impressions on fibre. These are just a few of the many options one has with exploring natural colour.  

Through heat extraction the matter binds to the surface creating unique one of a kind patterns and prints. Every dye session provides a unique story onto the paper or fabric that can never be replicated, and left to enjoy.

Testimonials

I got a silk dress made by Irene in collaboration with my wonderful partner. It was a birthday surprise present months in the making with blindfolded visits to her studio. I must admit I never felt more lucky than when I tried the dress on for the first time. Irene’s creativity and willingness to make something that really expressed my personality was above and beyond. She puts her soul into every piece she makes. I love how the dress looks and how it makes me feel. Free, strong and feminine. To wear a dress that was made just for me,that fits perfect, feels truly special. Thank you, Irene.

I love Irene's work because it ticks all the boxes of what clothing should be as we move forward in our fragile world: slow, ethical, sustainable, eternal. Her alchemical process is a wonder and the results pure art.(Warning: when you wear one of her unique pieces be prepared for lots of compliments and who designed this? questions!)

I adore every creation that I own that Irene has created for me. Being a lover of nature and flowers it makes my heart very happy to see how much the botanical have to offer well after the blooms have faded. The process of natural dye as well as the enchanting eco prints have mind-blowing beauty . I always feel special when I am wearing one of Irene's creations. Each garment is made with loads of love and are both practical as well as beautiful. The silk/wool blend scarf that I own is a constant travel companion for both cool evening as well as warm days and it is truly the most versatile item I own. I feel right at home wearing these gorgeous garments in the streets and parks of Calgary or while exploring the ruins in Rome.
