About Tinctoria Designs
Be eco-fabulous with Tinctoria, an organic clothing line all designed to fit together and layer beautifully! Tinctoria Designs was created by Samantha Backer and Jill Golden in the Spring of 2003. All of Tinctoria’s garments are our original designs and are intentionally manufactured in the city where we thrive, Portland, Oregon.
We use only organic fabric blends including hemp, soy, and organic cotton and we hand dye exclusively with plant and insect dyes. Our choice to use natural dyes and organic fibers honors and protects our bodies and the environment. Each Tinctoria garment is first sewn in it’s undyed natural state and is then hand dyed in our studio using material extracted from trees, roots, plants, and insects. All of the colors are handcrafted by mixing and over-dying different dyestuff such as indigo, madder root, osage, and cochineal
At Tinctoria, it is our intention is to be a leader in shifting planetary consciousness by providing an opportunity for our customers to make choices that are fashionable and comfortable,as well as sustainable and eco-conscious.
