Style: Maria Cauldron's Raw Silk Dresses...

Maria Cauldron

Have you seen these wonderful natural hand dyed dresses from Maria Cauldron? I am a little bit obsessed with these right now... Each of the one of a kind pieces is made using natural plant and insect dyes, harvested in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner from conscious companies and collectives that give back to the source.

Each textile piece must undergo its own personal process that spans 3-5 days of preparation and immersion. Including...
24 hours of Mordanting (preparing the fiber)
24 - 48 hours of Extracting the Dye from the matter.
24 hours of Clamping, Tying, Binding, Wrapping, Dying, Washing and Drying.
Multiple colors could add an additional 48 hours.
