Naturally dyeing old cotton sheets to create a display for the Exelcsior Hotel

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.


In our studio, we naturally dyed strips of old cotton bed sheets from the Excelsior Hotel in Thessaloniki. The old sheets were dyed with madder roots from Greece.

The dress was designed by Valentine Exter Zachartzi, and was constructed by the SEN team under the supervision and art direction of the designer, Achilleas Taktikos. 

A dress that holds the history, charm and elegance of the hotel, whilst bringing new life and carrying the message of sustainability.
