ABOUT ME: Welcome to the Charlie Darwin Textiles maker page! My name is Leah Widdicombe and I create natural fiber clothing and home decor in earthy tones & textures, all hand-dyed using pigments from plants! I use black tea, onion skins, indigo, leaves, and more to dye my fabrics a wide array of rich, biodegradeable colors. As the founder of Charlie Darwin Textiles, I am also the self-taught fashion designer, the seamstress cursing loudly at my sewing machine, the natural dye scientist, and your typical 5’1″ fashion model. I’ve been sewing since I was 11 years old and, like many of you, I’m passionate about building a meaningful relationship with the earth through a eco-friendly, low-waste lifestyle.
ABOUT MY PRODUCTS: My clothing line is made-to-measure, meaning I have one sample of each item pre-made, and will make yours in your custom size after you place your order. Each garment comes with a mending kit so that the garment you love can outlive you! I also offer many pre-made accessories and home décor, such as scarves, laptop cases, ornaments, and more. Feel like getting crafty yourself? (or have an artsy friend?) I am now offering natural dye kits, naturally dyed fabric (in various sizes), and handmade linen papers for you to experiment with!
