Beagle + Basset is an eco-conscious design studio, passionate about the ancient practice of
natural dyeing achieved with plant matter, harvested in South Africa.
We collect usually discarded raw materials — like fynbos, blue gum bark and avocado stones — and give them new life when we extract their pigment and use it to dye raw textiles.
Natural elements and environmental factors such as the change of seasons play a part in our process
making every batch completely unique.
The transient, ever-changing colours tell stories of centuries past.
THIS IS THE BEAUTY OF ORGANIC DYEING.
Step in to our world of interesting textures, considered design and patient processing.
