COMPOST YOUR CLOTHES
A lifetime's obsession with colour, fibre and creativity has led to the evolution of our slow fashion brand.
The Elemental Collection is a naturally dyed, fully sustainable, zero waste clothing collection that is 100% compostable.
NATURE AND PATIENCE
Dyeing is a journey of knowledge, practice, exploration and wisdom. A lifetime dedicated to the observation of nature, plants, alchemy and all things associated with colour.
FABRIC OF THE REVOLUTION
The beauty of Khadi is in the irregularities of this ancient cloth - defects derived from human hands. It is this handmade quality, with its inherent story of human energy, that creates a romance the cloth connoisseur craves.
THE HAPPY HANDS PROJECT
The driving force of Because of Nature is to facilitate and nurture women’s empowerment in rural India through sustainable employment in traditional textile practice.
THE MAKER AND HER JOURNEY
Sewing circles, silkworms and social enterprise. The story of leading textile artisan and natural dyer Kathy Williams spans generations and is intertwined with the lives of women across the seas.
“I love wearing Because of Nature. It makes me feel empowered knowing I’m supporting other women. Being conscious of where and how the beautiful garments are ethically and sustainably made, makes me feel closer to Mother Nature”
“Kathy’s work is so inspiring. Such a humble and passionate artist and craftswoman…..and teacher. I have enjoyed doing amazing workshops with her, as well as being able to access quality and beautiful products and clothing that have a bit of her heart and soul in them. I can’t wait to see what she creates next."
“Sustainability, earth, spirit, ethical, comfort and love are the words that come to mind when wearing...Because of Nature. I simply adore all the pieces I own as they make me feel connected to the energy that made them and the natural essence of nature itself.”
“Kathy took my love of marigold yellow and created something beyond my wildest dreams. Her respect for natural dyeing and dedication to authentic and traditional practices makes each piece a work of art that I am proud to hang in my wardrobe”
“Because of Nature is a gentle gift to the planet. The muslin scarves embody a resonance born of inspiration and crafted authentically by makers that draw on generations of spinning and weaving expertise. I love everything Because of Nature makes”
