Inspired by America's tradition of travelling salesman Studio Swine has created a portable dyer's workshop containing natural dye plants and sustainably sourced bamboo fibre socks. Each pair is hand dyed and comes with a pack of seeds and instructions to cultivate and produce your own plant dyes.
The process of natural dying can be achieved on a kitchen stove with pans and readily available ingredients. 'Seed Socks' aims to instigate the cultivation of dye plants on the windowsills and in the disused gaps throughout the city culminating in a plethora of colourful socks on the streets.
By connecting seasonal fashion with seasonal plants, the experience of nature’s seasonal shifts within the urban environment is amplified. ‘Seed Socks’ offers a sustainable slow alternative to fast fashion.
