Wrist Tie with Charm
We’ve been working on these wrist ties for a long time now, they’re hand dyed by Sam and I at home, using all natural dyes such as turtle beans, spinach, tumeric, avocado pits and black tea. The material is jersey fabric that is a direct waste product of the fashion industry, they tie in a simple overhand knot and look just like a surfboard leash string with a charm on (don’t actually use them for that, you may be disappointed when your board drifts out to sea).
Because of the jersey fabric they have a slight stretch in them which means once you’ve wiggled the knot down to fit your wrist you can tighten the knot, trim the ends and then just take it on and off over your hand- which is just as well because I wouldn’t recommend wearing these for swimming or bathing or generally getting wet as they need to be looked after carefully.
I’m so immensely happy with the muted colour pallet we’ve achieved and the earthy tones, as well as of course the fabric’s sustainable credentials. (Our previous cords were recycled cotton and eco dyed but these feel much more us, a little different and closer to what I’ve wanted to achieve for some time)
