lIVY's new collaboration - mathieu ruiz
Mathieu is renowned for his natural plant-based dyes. With a raw, spontaneous and organic approach, he combines artisanal craftsmanship and contemporary creation. Earth Pleasure products have been dyed in 2 different shades: "Sandstone Powder" a soft, subtle and warm pink. Made from madder roots, grown in Europe. And "Soleil poète", a warm and comforting yellow, made of reseda, a plant grown in France, in the High Pyrenees, in an organic way.
the tie and dye technique
Used by Matthieu is called "crumble", it is a particular way of crumpling and knotting the garment in order to obtain clouds of color and a marbled effect on the whole piece. Each piece is then totally unique. The knotting was done with elastic scraps from the old Livy collection.
