Plant dyed gift idea for men and boys (and women and girls!)
Another little thing I made this month. It was a Christmas gift for my dad - a small drawstring bag made with linen and organic cotton.
I’ve had a customer in our brick and mortar recently telling me that my products are very nice but “not for men”. It’s true that plant colors tend to be pastel. I’m also very drawn to soft shades so I mostly choose those in my process. But this time I challenged myself to make a less “girly” pouch. The top was dyed with acorns and iron, for the bottom I chose raw beeswaxed linen. It’s lined with raw linen too.
I love how making Christmas gifts can give so many new ideas. I’m very happy how these pouches turned out, which is lovely and terrible at the same time because I have almost no time to make them in bigger amounts now 😂
So what do you think? Is it manly enough? Dad seemed to like it 😊
