We Are Albert

Botanica Tinctoria is delighted to be included in the new sustainable sourcing site for theatre and film costuming, We Are Albert.

European women's clothing, and our materials have made some starring appearances - we can't say where!

Eloise Ptito-Echeverria & the Huipil

Eloise Ptito-Echeverria & the Huipil

Botanica Tinctoria recently sponsored the wonderfully talented young designer Eloise Ptito-Echeverria.  Eloise, who has a background in Fine Arts and is now in her third year studying Fashion, has been exploring her cultural roots through the traditional "huipil" blouse, worn by women throughout South America. She says, "the huipil is an extraordinary silhouette and textile canvas for me to express myself with and to branch off from creatively." Using our Eri Silk embroidery threads, Eloise has hand stitched lyrics from artist Lido Pimienta's song, "Mueve", a work she finds deeply inspiring, "Only your soul will save you."
