Toyon Antique High Neck Ruffle Dress
Dyed with Toyon, Heteromeles arbutifolia
Toyon is a perennial shrub that grows in the chaparral and oak woodland habitats here in the Santa Monica Mountains. Her distinct serrated leaves and bright red berries make her recognizable throughout this coastal mountain landscape. When it comes to extracting color, toyon can give a variety of hues based on the extraction method. We have been able to use her bark, leaves and berries to get colors of cream, peachy-orange, and various shades of pink.

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.
