seed socks

Inspired by America's tradition of travelling salesman, 'Seed Sock' is a portable dyer's workshop containing natural dye plants and sustainably sourced bamboo fibre socks. Each pair is hand dyed and comes with a pack of seeds and instructions to cultivate and produce your own plant dyes. The process of natural dying can be achieved on a kitchen stove with pans and readily available ingredients. 'Seed Socks' aims to instigate the cultivation of dye plants on the windowsills and in the disused gaps throughout the city culminating in a plethora of colourful socks on the streets.

By Studio Swine commissioned for New York Fashion Week 2011.
