Alex Mill Editions: Natural Dye Large Tote in Botanical Multi
Alex Mill Editions are made in small batches with reclaimed materials. This roomy tote was designed by our friends at Front General Store in Brooklyn - we reworked it in collaboration with a New York City-based botanical dye artist, Maddie Provost (she dyes these pieces in the tiny kitchen of her apartment). Its rich shade is achieved by a mix of madder root, one of the oldest botanical dyes in the world, logwood, a wood native to Central America and osage, a wood native to the southern continental USA. Each varies in depth of color and tone due to the nature of our hand-done process, making each piece unique (splotches, streaks and spots are meant to be embraced!). Over time expect the color to develop a beautiful, lived-in patina. Only 2 of these were made!
