“For me, the magic happens within the dyeing process because it is usually a surprise to me to discover the unique colors produced from ordinary elements.”

Kristen’s handmade textiles are organic, in every sense of the word. Her printed illustrations are drawn by hand, and her dyes come from things like foods and spices. For instance, those lovely pink pillows? They were dyed from avocado skins. Unexpected results like these are what keep her excited and make for completely original pieces, every time. So while we don’t have to understand how green produce makes pink pillows or how tree barks can make red or purple dye (yep, that's how it works) – we can bask in the organic decor that results from Kristen's adventures.
