About Rose In The Forest
ROSE IN THE FOREST ribbons, textiles and canvasses are 100% naturally dyed using plants, food waste, minerals and spices. Made in small batches, hand-dyed and hand-crafted by JO ROSE, in her artist studio in Hampshire on the edge of the New Forest.
Jo sources organic and natural fabric including bamboo silk and hemp and finds pre-loved garments and recycled fabric in local charity shops which are then re-loved with natural dye and a little forest magic.
Jo studied Costume Design and Theatrical Make-up at the London College of Fashion and after moving to the New Forest, fell in love with the enchanting colours, textures and patterns found in nature and created her highly recognisable and richly textured illustration style and forest characters DEER LITTLE FOREST
Jo now works as an eclectic, mixed-media artist at JO ROSE STUDIO and gains daily inspiration from her forest bathing and wild swimming in the New Forest and from her local community farm, where Jo loves spending time growing veggies, learning about permaculture and sustainability.
Every Ribbon Tells A Story......
Each hand-dyed and hand-crafted item is one-of-a-kind, like you and I.
Each completely unique, carrying it's own marks, colour variations and magical imperfections.
