Madder Handsewn Crop
Dyed with Madder and hand sewn in our studio from a 1930's skirt slip!
Madder root is best known for its brick reds, but depending on the material of the garment as well as extraction process, can also provide vibrant magentas as well as the occasional orange tone. Madder harvested for its red roots that are high in alizarin. The roots themselves are already a vibrant red color and the plants can take anywhere from three to five years to reach maturity. It's such a joy to grow Madder in your own yard, and have patience for the natural color that is growing right beneath the soil.

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.
