I’m a natural dyer, a creative soul and a lover of natural beauty.
The materials and products I use are natural and respectful of the environment.
Alkanna not only represents the essence of my project as a dyer, it is also my identity on a personal level, it represents my roots, my Mediterranean origins and the place where my work is born and grows
Plants are, of course, fundamental in my creativity and plant dye literally changed my life. I am at my happiest when using my hands to create, spending time connecting with nature, whether this is gathering plants and flowers or simply in my studio dyeing materials.
All my products are hand made with materials such as silks, linen and natural cotton, many of which are ecological. Materials with their own personality, absolutely unique, created step by step, thanks to dye and print techniques. This is why no two are the same!!!
As you can see, all my creations breathe simplicity and nature as many of the natural dyes I use come from a range of local flowers or vegetables, such as pine tree bark, rosemary, purple morning glory, fresh leaves and petals from trees and flowers such as chamomile, bay leaves and walnut.
My creative mind and my passion for colour means that I am always on the lookout for new materials to make new creations and colours to surprise my customers.
