MADRE is honored and humbled to join forces with the indomitable women of Vibrant Valley Farm to offer linen napkins dyed with VVF-grown and -dyed indigo. These gorgeous linen napkins are the first in what we hope will be a series of plant-dyed napkin collaborations between MADRE, VVF, and other rad Portland people we admire.
One day soon, when MADRE is able to offer Oregon linen goods, this partnership will truly be entirely Portland-based!
Napkins are 17"x17" and come as a set of two.
CARE: How to wash your indigo-dyed napkins
Indigo is more color-fast than other plant dyes, but your napkins will still need to be treated with some extra TLC. To keep your napkins blue, and to keep your lights light, please wash your MADRE/VVF indigo napkins in cold water with dark colors. Always use a gentle, PH neutral soap. We recommend ECOS brand.
Line drying will keep your napkins blue the longest, but sunlight can fade the color as well, so we recommend either machine dry on a low temperature or choose a shady outdoor spot for napkin drying.
*Note: due to the organic nature of plant dyes, dye lots will vary in color and saturation.
