The Social Studio engaged local fashion designer, Tamara Leacock of Remuse Designs, to naturally dye a pile of calico offcuts from a completed production order in-house.
Tamara experimented with Indigo, Turmeric and Madder Root to produce a calming and happy palette for us to reimagine into new designs. Nancy, the studio's Design and Production Assistant, created one-off placemat sets - with the assistance of our experienced Production Machinist, Amee.
Each set contains: 2 x dinner plate mats (approx 31cm diameter), 1 x large pot holder (approx 24.5cm diameter), 1 x small pot holder (approx 19cm diameter), 2 x coasters (approx 11cm diameter).
Front: 100% cotton calico, naturally dyed with Indigo, Turmeric and Madder Root. Edges bound with upcycled contrast coloured fabric. Each piece has a cotton interlining for durability and stability.
Back: 100% cotton chambray.
Care: Gentle hand wash with delicate detergent. Dry in shade.
Made at The Social Studio in Collingwood, Melbourne, Australia. 100% of profits go towards supporting our education and employment programs for people from refugee and new-migrant backgrounds.
