A Color Collaboration with Maria of Tintoreria Project.
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 to avocado pits 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.
To create this beautiful color the pillow cases were dyed with onion skins, acorns and tea. The skins were collected from a local restaurant El Bon in Brooklyn, along with the Brooklyn farmers market.
