After a long research, Studio Nienke Hoogvliet discovered that herbs used as textile dye can have a positive effect on our health. But the dyeing process produces waste – the residue of the herbs. To make the entire process circular, a collaboration was formed between the concept brand FANT, artist Loes Schepens and designer Nienke Hoogvliet.

Together they explored how the herbs from their own garden, rosemary and sage, could be used to dye scarves, make paper and color paper. They created a wide color palette from yellow and green to pink for textiles, new structures in paper and special ways of incorporating as many residues from the processes as possible into new objects.
