The Stories

Meet the Maker: Botanika; Plant Based Dye Accessories

LAUREN MUSACCHIO

Inspired by her background in styling and fashion journalism, Sara Hajgato started experimenting with organic colors and became mesmerized by the perfect harmony natural dyes yield. And thus Botanika, her own line of textile goods made with natural resources and fabrics, was born. Botanika stems from Sara’s deep-rooted quest to find closeness with nature while living an urban lifestyle, and is driven by a desire to create eco-conscious products. She makes all of her natural dyes from her surroundings - all plant based. 

Botanika is about embracing and reviving the traditional artisan techniques of natural dyeing and fabric manipulation. It is about connecting to those around you on a person level. It is about making conscious decisions during design and production, choosing low-impact sustainable materials and processes. And overall, It is a celebration of modern day alchemy, the alchemy of natural colours. The effortless, thoughtful, chic BOTANIKA pieces are created with personal care in harmony with nature.
