Our Mission

 

Københavns Plantefarveri is a natural dye and design studio established in 2017 by textile designer Maja Lund Hvidtfeldt. The Copenhagen based studio focuses on timeless designs and slow fashion rooted in natural dyes.

Sustainable

The studio’s mission is to create contemporary naturally dyed textiles and designs that connects people to their natural surroundings and furthermore to inspire and educate about sustainable options to the toxic textile production, that is ruining our environment today on a global scale.

Natural

The studio prioritizes local, organic and ethically sourced materials in the production, such as dyes from locally foraged wild plants, organic garden produce from local farms and food waste production. The dye processes use only plants, natural and mineral materials in combination with natural fibres, leaving out all toxic synthetic chemicals and heavy metals.

Handmade

Every garment in our collections are carefully made by handpicking ingredients with purpose and with the impact on our environment in mind. All our collections are produced and handmade in Copenhagen.

Københavns Plantefarveri is one of Copenhagen’s first modern natural dye studios. We create hand-dyed luxurious garments of high quality.

By painting textiles with colours from flowers, roots and plants, we design poetic art pieces that make moods, memories of places, people and special occasions live on in personal and unique garments and textiles.

Our botanical dyeing techniques are modern, experimental and sustainable, thus building on a traditional and historic craft. We use only natural materials for our dyeing process and prefer clean and organic ingredients. We collaborate with local flower shops, florists and flower farmers who deliver their leftovers for our production.
