The Botanical Dyer | Folklore Flowers

About My Business

I'm Rebecca, and I run two creative flower businesses. As The Botanical Dyer, I create beautiful plant-dyed silk ribbons using plants grown in my pesticide-free garden and foraged from nearby hedgerows and woodland. I strive to be as sustainable as possible in my methods and offer an eco-conscious alternative to synthetically dyed and mass produced ribbons. You can find out more about my processes and luxurious silks on the About page of my Etsy shop.

As well as growing dye ingredients, I grow strawflowers alongside a few other varieties that are good for drying. My strawflowers are wired onto 30 cm wires for bouquets and arrangements, and onto short bendy wires for wreath and buttonhole making. I also sell the flowerheads for crafters, as well as some of my own creations.

I grow a limited amount of cut flowers too, so if you're a local florist looking for fresh, seasonal blooms, it's always worth dropping me a line to see what's available.
