Deep Lac Traditional Huipil Crop
We recognize these Huipil pieces are a fundamental part of Latin American culture. We love working with these traditional styles because they originate from the same countries & regions that are home to so many dye plants that we have come to know so well. We feel that plant dyes are a way to bring these traditional garments new life with integrity, as long before the use of conventional dyes, plant dyes were used on these very same designs.
Dyed with Lac
Lac is one of the few dye materials that are not plants, but actually insects found largely throughout Asia that secrete a resin on a host tree, most often fig and acacia trees. This resin is then harvested for the dye properties.

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.
