When art and activism collide, the effect can be incredibly powerful. Not only has Maria Romero made a commitment to creating beautiful textiles, she is also helping our planet in the process. Romero founded Tintoreria, an initiative to reduce mass consumption by recycling and dyeing textiles with natural dyes from everything from avocado pits, indigo and onion skins to flowers and turmeric. The result is not only rich in color, but in method, reconnecting us to the elements of the earth. Color may vary from batch to batch due to the use of natural dyes.
