The Megan Pillow, madder + chestnut bark

from 143.00

The Megan pillow is a beautiful combination of dyes made from madder and chestnut trees. Its vintage linen has a warm, earthy feel with a lot of texture.

Madder is one of the oldest dyestuffs known. It is a perennial climbing plant with evergreen leaves and small pale yellow flowers. The roots can be over three feet long, and are usually harvested in the second or third year of growth. Considered an ancient or heirloom dye plant; madder has been used throughout history for the brilliant orange and red hues it can produce. Textiles dyed with madder have been discovered in archaeological sites, tombs, and graves dating back to the ancient Egyptians and the Mohenjo-daro site. Chestnut trees grow in many parts of the world and are a great source of tannin. They dye a warm brown colour.
