Christine Lewis is a natural dyer, maker, and gardener from the UK whose approach to dyeing emphasizes a waste-free and efficient use of natural resources for creative use. This collaboration with Housework features her signature natural dyes paired with pure Lithuanian linen and cotton stitching. Each napkin is sewn and hand-dyed by the artist using plants she's grown in her garden, foraged, or received as food waste from the local community.

Materials: OEKO-Tex certified linen (naturally dyed with earth salts, tea, acorn and oak leaves, painted with tannins of English oak [Quercus rober] and iron), cotton thread.

Flax grown and woven in Lithuania. Napkins sewn and naturally dyed in England.
