Hi Folks! We are Ashton & Claire of Wax & Wane Fiber, a natural dye collective imbuing lunar love in all we do. Place & space inform our work. Because of this, we travel as much as we can. Follow along on our journey of making sacred cloths, learning the ins & outs of natural dyes, and sharing our passions & knowledge with the world.

As artists and ecological stewards working with colors from the earth is very important to us. Never knowing exactly what a bath of plant-derived dyes will reveal is always a great joy to us and to others when we are teaching these techniques. There is a childlike sense of wonder when people see for the first time how pH changes alter the colors of sappanwood or when the neon green of indigo breathes its way into deep midnight. It’s those moments we live for. We are excited to continue this journey in the natural world and to see all the places it can take us.

Hear more about our process on the have-company podcast here, with Bmore Cloth here, with Close-Knit here, or with Two Create here.
