Bristol Jacket ~ Avocado Pink - S
Ready to ship - size S
Lovingly hand dyed with avocado. The Bristol Jacket is a slightly loose boxy fit, that should give you enough room for a cosy jumper underneath. It's cropped to sit around hip height. It has two generous front pockets, a button down front, with 4 natural corozo nut buttons. A loop sits below the back of the collar so you can easily hang the jacket up without a hanger.
The Bristol Jacket in Avocado Pink goes through a very lengthy dye process, this is why it’s a little more expensive than the other jackets, the time intensity is also why they are a super limited run. Learn more below.

Fabric is pre treated with soya milk to help aid absorption of dyes stuff. 1 week before dyeing.
Fabric is soaked in warm water for 12-24 hours before dyeing, in this time the dye stuff is prepared by simmering avocado skins or pits for at least 2 hours - the water becomes rich with dye quite quickly, once a deep colour is reached the dye stuff is strained through muslin, this process is repeated around 5-6 times.
Damp fabric is immersed into dye pot (while gentle simmering) for 1-4 hours, stirred regularly to avoid pockets of dye forming.
Very gentle rinse.
Fabric is left to dry for 1 week before washing with a gentle detergent.
Fabric is ironed, cut & sewn into your Bristol Jacket, finally buttons and labels are added. It takes about 5-6 hours to complete the final stages of the process.
Due to the natural dyeing process some very small areas of hyper-pigmentation to be expected. The pink will fade a little, gently overtime. Always store naturally dyed fabrics out of direct sun. Wash cool by hand or on a very gentle cycle. Always line dry. Iron with steam. We don’t use any harsh chemicals or metals, just soya, avocado and water.
Each avocado dyed garment is truly one of a kind as no two dye baths will reach an identical tone. ~ this is such a beautiful part of natural dyeing.
