Folkwear Sewing Patterns, continued!

Posted by Rachel MacHenry

As part of our continuing collaboration with Folkwear Sewing Patterns, we're making up a number of their designs in Botanica TInctoria materials.  Currently, we're working out details for the English Smock - see the pattern here: https://www.folkwear.com/products/221-english-smock - and we're testing out different smocking designs. Smocking involves a lot of preparation, but results in a beautiful, elastic fabric.  We've been working with our organic cotton voile in Terra Cotta and Eri silk embroidery threads, and you can see our first test piece below.

We Are Albert

Botanica Tinctoria is delighted to be included in the new sustainable sourcing site for theatre and film costuming, We Are Alberthttp://wearealbert.org/. We regularly get inquiries from film costumers since our colours are historically accurate, especially for 19th C. European women's clothing, and our materials have made some starring appearances - we can't say where!

Albert exists to support the UK's production industries transition to environmental sustainability, working with the industry in collaboration to encourage the adaptation of best practices.  So, that includes finding sustainable materials whenever possible.  Albert does a lot of great work with traditional artisan weavers in various parts of the world, re-creating specialized and historical textiles for use in film and television costuming.
