Our products are handmade and individually unique as each one has its very own birthmark. Every piece is naturally hand-dyed using natural extracts from Planet Earth, so depending on harvest and season, imperfections and colour variations will appear, it is normal and expected. This picture is a representation of the final piece, some colours may end up tonally different.  Since each item goes through the dyeing process, there may be an earthy smell, and when new, you may experience crocking and rubbing off. Please make sure you are comfortable with this before ordering.

OUR NATURAL DYES

Our dyes are natural, organic and skin friendly.

Cutch

Cutch produces the most illustrious golden browns and warm fawns. Cutch is historically derived from the heart of a cutch tree located in Asia. This dye creates the colour KHAK (khaki), an Indian word for dust, earth, and ashes.

Fustic

Fustic is a tree found in the forest of Brazil and the West Indies. This dye produces the warmest yellows straight from the heartwood of the tree. Combined with other dyes, it produces a nice range.

Gallnut mixed with Iron

Gallnut is found in an Oak tree, it produces Oak Galls- a defence against insects which lay their eggs in punctures they make on weaker branches. Once harden, the tannin rich gum from the tree becomes gallnuts. Naturally this dye produces darker colours such as greys and black but with Iron it saddens the colour even more with a darker effect.

Logwood mixed with Iron

Logwood is a tree found in the beautiful forests of Central America. Dyeing with Logwood is so fun and easy, a small amount goes a long way. We decided to mix it with Iron to give it a darker feel and improve the lightfastness.

Chlorophyllin

This is a copper compound extracted from stinging nettles. This dye is very strong and also takes a small amount to produce the most amazing range of greens.

Lac

Lac can be found in Asia as the dye is extracted from scale insects. This dye has been used for hundreds of years producing soft ranges of reds.

 

 

CARE METHODS

Helpful tips on best methods to give your Bad Habits items the most care.

See below for the best recommendation from our team and note this is also listed on the care label for your reference.

Depends on what type of customer you are in regards to the washing methods. To keep your item in the best condition we recommend the below:

We recommend to hand wash with a natural washing detergent or ph neutral soap in cold or room temperature water.

However if you are customer that is much more relaxed about their pieces, feel free to throw it in the washing machine at 30 degree cycle but still make sure to use natural detergent. We recommend a separate wash for the first few times as this is a plant dyed item and there could be crocking or rub off to happen as it is apart of the normal process.

Our team at Bad Habits London wash all of our items at this cycle and we make sure to dry (items inside out) at the lowest spin to avoid more tension with the item. We prefer the natural changes that the piece goes through the cycling process as gives it more character and personality.

We ask to please DO NOT dry clean. Dry cleaning chemicals really harm the environment and it does not meet the message we stand for at Bad Habits London. Our goal to focus on bettering the environment and we need your assistance to make sure we all can make a difference.
