What is hand-dying?

At smith bowen we carefully & thoughtfully hand-dye all the garments ourself. Why? 

Well for starters the colors are stunning and all natural . They are safe for you , your skin and the environment . NO TOXIC chemicals are used . This keeps you safe and us!

For pink we use Cochineal a scale insect from Mexico that is cultivated on cacti.

For avacado we use the pits and skin to create a warm skin tone that’s heavenly. 

 By taking responsibility for your personal health and safety you are exercising good judgement. When you make good buying decisions you become empowered to protect the natural environment.
