Kathryn Davey

Kathryn is a self taught designer and natural dyer living in Dublin, Ireland. She started working with textiles and natural dyes whist living in Northern California. Her journey into the amazing world of sustainable plant dyes began with Indigo dyeing which led her to teach Indigo & Shibori workshops in the Bay Area & beyond.

Kathryn returned to Ireland in 2014 where her commitment to sustainable production led her to create a line of luxurious, naturally dyed Accessories & Irish linen textiles for the home. All her linen is woven exclusively in the South of Ireland, manufactured in Dublin & sustainably dyed by hand in her studio. Her naturally dyed textiles can now be found in boutique shops from Ireland to Japan.

Kathryn is passionate about textiles, natural dyes and the integrity of true craftsmanship. She loves sharing the joy & magic of plant dyes with others & teaches ongoing natural dye workshops in Dublin & abroad.
