Early Spring Collection: Polar Lights
Introducing our new, Early Spring collection, inspired by mysterious shadows, organic forms and early morning mists of Scandinavia. Skyscapes ablaze with charcoal grey and searing orchid. These wonders within darkness, the marvels that inspire this collection of casual, yet chic pieces. Staples equally at home on the sofa as they are exploring the wild.
Early Spring Collection: Polar Lights
So here it is, Polar Lights. A collection that brings comfortable silhouettes to help us begin the year with care and ease. Soft bamboo and cosy organic cotton fleece are key fabrics, creating silky smooth, lust worthy pieces. Ethereal tones of the Northern Lights are seen through four key colourways – our dyeing techniques bringing them alive. An off-duty feel is core to the collection. These pieces are made for you, and you only – for relaxed weekends or out and about, it’s your choice. Here are some of our favourites from the new Early Spring collection…
Our Top Picks from Polar Lights
Dip Dye Top
The drawstring centre and dip dye design are what makes this top unique. It comes in an oversized fit to keep things casual, with easy dropped shoulders. We love this print so much that we decided to share a quick and easy ‘DIY dip dye’ tutorial below, for the creatives amongst us – why not try it for yourself?
One of the most loved pieces of the Early Spring collection, our Borrg Jumpsuit. It’s crafted from silky soft bamboo and has a synched waist. Pair this easy to wear piece with trainers and an oversized knit for relaxed weekends.
A best-selling style: our signature, bamboo slacks. Perfect for your daily yoga, curling up with a book, or walking the dog. These ones come in our new Scandi-inspired print – in a wonderful ocean blue. Our favourite thing about these lounge pants is the large fold-over waistband. It’s versatile and forgiving, yet flattering too.
Introducing our new, relaxed cowl neck top. It features a contemporary, woven Tencel panel at the front with a bamboo jersey back and sleeves, making it breathable and soft. This piece is simple but beautiful, and is sure to be a favourite for seasons to come.
Fyre Pocket Dress
If you haven’t yet tried our organic fleece-back fabric, you really are missing out. Organic cotton is much smoother than conventional cotton, and therefore much kinder on the skin, making this dress truly sensational. Plus, who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?
DIY Dip Dye Tutorial
- A white tee
- Your choice of eco-friendly dye
- A deep tray or bucket
- Rubber gloves
1. Heat your water to around 60°C. Then pour it into your chosen container. You will need about 7.5 litres of water for every pound of fabric.
2. Stir the dye into the water.You can use either liquid dye or powder dye. How much you use depends on how much fabric you are dyeing and how dark you want the colour to be.
3. Add some salt, if needed.Each brand of dye is different, so you may not need to add this, however salt is usually added to the dye bath to help the dye adhere better to the fabric.
4. Dip the fabric into the dye.How far you dip it in depends on how thick you want the coloured band to be. The deeper you dip the fabric into the dye, the thicker the band will be. If you find it easier, use a pin to mark where you want the dye to end. Dip the fabric into the dye just belowthe pin – the dye should creep up the fabric slightly.
5. For a gradient effect, gradually pull the fabric out of the water.Leave the fabric in the dye for 1 minute, then pull it out one-third of the way. Leave it there for 2 to 3 minutes, then pull it out by another third. Wait 5 to 6 minutes, then pull it out the rest of the way.
6. Rinse the t-shirt under cool water, making sure you hold the un-dyed part at the top.
7. Finally, wash your t-shirt and leave to dry!
