Mayamiko has partnered with AMMA for these unique, limited edition products. Amma trains and employs mothers living in the Sri Lankan highlands to turn food waste and plants into natural dyes. Sustainable textiles, ethically handmade.
They create beautiful plant dyed textiles, encouraging consumers to 'open their eyes' to this ancient art and become aware of the negative impact that the fashion and textile industry has on our world.
Products are made in a rural workshop, using handwoven cotton and 100% plant dyes using food waste such as avocado stones and pomegranate skins from hotels and restaurants along with foraging for fallen leaves and sourcing medicinal plants to produce our dyes.
Everything evolves around the dyes, this is why things take time. Small batch production means every piece is one of a kind
The mothers employed by the project come from the tea estates that surround the workshop. They are from low income backgrounds and are now principle contributors to the household finances. We could not be prouder of this, as they become role models within their communities.
Naturally-dyed fabrics need to be cared for differently to synthetically-dyed fabrics. All dyes eventually fade over time including synthetic ones! Natural dyes will alter and change in shade and tone over a period of time. Gently soak in cool water using a ph neutral eco washing soap. Use a tea towel or old cloth to remove excess water. Don’t use stain remover or harsh chemicals. Dry flat and store out of direct sunlight to preserve the colour.
