Item details

We're putting some of our very favorite hues right in your hands and sharing the magic of color with WE GATHER Dye Kits!

If you are drawn to a gratifying hands-on creative endeavor, then you've found the DIY dye answer. Our dye kits each contain our in-house blend of non-toxic, low-impact dye in one of our most popular colors along with all of the ingredients necessary to make that color come alive. All you have to do is choose your goods* and let your color wheel spin.

The contents of this dye kit will yield a medium shade of Clean Grey, a soft, calm and cool neutral that we use in our studio every season. With one kit you can dye up to 3-6 square yards of fabric, or 3 T-shirts, or 1 pound of yarn or other goods.

FAQs

This is one of the most common questions asked about handmade products, and it has no short answers. Generally, it takes 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the size of the product, but that too will vary since our products represent a culmination of many different processes. Included in these are the more abstract, albeit necessary practices of imagining, theorizing, discussing, sketching, and sampling. Add to that our technically rigorous dyeing, weaving, and finishing methods, and the quantifiable hours may start to feel overwhelming. All this to say that we love what we do at WE GATHER. Our processes are filled with joy, exploration, and celebration of its own kind, and we hope the value of that is reflected in the quality of our goods.

We loooove creating custom textiles of your dreams. To get the process started, please send a message with the type of product you have in mind (you can reference one of our listed products where appropriate), the product's intended use, any color preferences you may have, and your timeline. We'll work with you to accommodate your needs and make your dreams come true! Please note: custom products require the same processes as our available product collection plus any additional time needed to work with you and make sure that the product perfectly reflects you or the intended recipient.

We use only natural fiber yarns, primarily cotton, wool, and silk. We love these materials because they come with a history - humans have been using these fibers to clothe, protect, and warm themselves for tens of thousands of years. We’re proud to take part in that lineage. Our dyes are fiber-reactive synthetic dyes. This particular type of dye is low-impact, water system-safe, and is safe to wear or use right next to your skin. All of our materials, including our packaging where possible, are American-made.

All of our products are functional textiles and are meant to be used, loved, and shared. That means that they may not remain forever pristine, and that’s ok. Every touch, every drip, every tug transforms your WE GATHER product into your textile. And just like all of us, WE GATHER textiles will change over time. Fibers may soften, colors may fade or change, your use and love will make them into heirlooms. Should a mishap occur, simply spot clean small areas by dabbing with lukewarm water and mild detergent. For further cleaning, machine or hand wash cold with mild detergent and air dry or dry on low. It’s best to avoid wringing out handwoven textiles.

Here at WE GATHER, we aim to inspire joy and spread the love and celebration. If your purchase does not live up to these standards, we are happy to work with you to fix or exchange your product. However, because our products are 100% handmade and often created specifically for an individual, we can not accept returns.

Yes! Every Plocket comes with a thoughtfully selected air plant. We have partnered with one of our favorite local businesses, Stems Brooklyn, to provide you with healthy, top-quality air plants. Your air plant will come packed in a plastic bag for protection during shipping.

The air plants that come with our Plockets are resilient, air-breathing beings. While your plant will survive an occasional oversight, it does need some attention. The air plant is a thirsty little creature and will do best when regularly watered. When you receive your air plant, soak it first in a bowl of water for 30-40 minutes, and let it dry before placing it in your Plocket. Soak your plant this way about every two weeks. Spritz your air plant with water every 3-4 days in between soaks. Your air plant loves bright and indirect light, and it will thrive most when placed near a window or fluorescent light source. Give your air plant some love, perhaps even give it a name, and enjoy your new plant friend in its WE GATHER home.

Yes! In most cases, WE GATHER products are available for wholesale purchasing. Please send us a message and we'll get started!
