The Inky Gather Top is part of a series made from silk textile waste sourced from Think Positive Prints, an international leader in sustainable digital printing. We over-dye their silk colour trials and misprinted lengths with a natural dyeing technique in order to cover and obscure the prints that cannot be used commercially due to copyright reasons.
We overdye the garments using logwood, a pigment from sustainably managed forests, and oak galls, that are responsibly and locally collected. The garment is then dipped in an iron based water, modifying the natural colour of the logwood in order to achieve the deep inky tones.
Please note, model wears Inky Apron Bra over the Inky Gather Top in imagery.
