Chestnut Work Overalls
Dyed with Chestnut
Chestnut is a tannin rich dye that is known for yielding the warmest of sand tones, soft browns, and occasionally soft mustard hues. We use chestnut extract as a source of color both independently and mixed with other dyes and modifiers. Easily underestimated, Chestnut is an essential component to any plant dyer's toolbox.

Care Instructions: Due to the nature of plant dyes, color may fade over time. In many cases, the fades and color shifts adds to the beauty and history of these garments. Please wash on cold with similar colors. For garments dyed with indigo, wash separately the first two wash cycles as indigo may bleed more than other plant dyes. Lay garments flat to dry, and do not lay in direct sun. PH neutral detergent is best, we recommend 7th generation as both a detergent and fabric softener.
All Rooted Botanics pieces are hand dyed, vintage, & pre-loved. As such, there may be some variation in color throughout, making each piece unique and beautiful in it's own way. Any major spotting or garment defects will be noted or photographed.
