Alchemy Textiles Workshop

About Us

Every unique piece that is born out of our cozy NYC studio is hand-dyed using all natural botanicals then transformed into one-of-a-kind finished goods. We do all the dyeing, cutting, sewing, and fraying by hand in small batches.

We practice a range of methods including shibori, knitting, weaving, crochet, and experiment with a variety of natural dyes-indigo, turmeric, logwood tree, and madder root (to name just a few…).

Each piece we make is a personal studio exploration: a textile séance conjuring age-old techniques to create beautiful fiber goods and accessories. We hope you love each unique creation as much as we do.
