BLUEREDYELLOW

BLUEREDYELLOW is a design and natural dye house producing comfortable, chemical free textiles since 2010. It was started by Elissa Meyers(right) and Mira Adornetto(left) through The Corzo Center for the Creative Economy. Currently, we have been working with businesses as an alternative dye service and do piece dyeing as well as dyeing by the yard. With our products, we source our organic cotton fabric as local as possible, and utilize several dyes, some of which we have grown and harvested (Philadelphia, PA). We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Besides our textiles, we sell exhausted dye material in our Apothecary necklaces, natural perfume oils reminiscent of our soil and also teach workshops. Feel free to contact us with interest. Also, please do not hesitate to ask us questions! We intend to be completely open about our process and the origins of our products. We believe that our customers have every right to know each step that goes into creating the product they have respectively invested in.

Of course we are grateful for all of our friends, family and investors for supporting this endeavor!
