Nature calls to itself Nature with its unexpected richness, a precious source of dye extracts and continuous inspiration.
The more light rays pass through the fabric, shaking it with life, the brighter and vibrant will be the end result of a Studio AK garment. Few things give us a stimulating feeling like a high quality natural fabric. For us there is no more exciting material with whom start working, interpreting textile design in a natural way. ‘Natural’ in the sense that we maintain the integrity of the organic nature of the textile fibers as much as possible, making artisanal dyeing of garments our signature and our flagship, minimizing synthetic products in the production process.
It is not surprising that natural dyes love natural fibers: flowers, leaves, berries, stems, roots, minerals and insects are used in the natural dyeing of organic fibers to obtain a wide range of colors and shades – not only indigo – of particular charm, depth and shifting, with good characteristics of solidity and reproducibility.
It is a responsible production in all phases, which gives life to a tangible and visible, absolutely concrete sustainability, of which the adequate evaluation of raw materials is only part of the entire process. It is therefore necessary to invest more in research in this sector and to acquire more knowledge on the potential of natural species and those of the extracts that can be obtained from them, with an attention to all-round eco-compatibility, even of processing waste (biodegradability).
