Ground Pines (Lycopodium clavatum) Wolfsklauw (NL)
Family: Lycopodiaceae
Dyes: mordant/colorant/color enhancer

Ground pine (Wolfs claw) is not (yet) well known as a dye plant. Ground pine is a spore plant that remains green and grows on acid, dry and nutrient-poor sandy soil.
It is used, among other things, as a mordant and to enhance colors of other dyes. For example, it can enhance the blue of bluewood and dyes it green together with Dyer’s rocket.

Ground pine …
… is in many European countries a protected plant species: it’s forbidden to pick it yourself.



Oogst Natural Dye product philosophy

Tiring of quick-fix culture and instant gratification? Frustrated with the monotony of modern life? Are you yearning to make elegant and stylish products yourself?

Instead of falling victim to the ‘quick-fix’ mentality, take your time and create something relatively insignificant by today’s standards. Get back to nature with natural dyes.

The earth is our most precious resource. It provides everything we need, including the landscape in which we live, the food we eat, the air we breathe. It’s our foundation, grounding us in a steady rhythm of seasons. The fast pace of modern life has shifted what is considered valuable. What we need and even who we are has been redefined by a consumeristic society.

Let go of the impulsive convenience mindset. Break free from the urge to just consume. Create something new, make something on your own – using natural dyes – and reconnect yourself with nature. Discover the pleasure of Oogst natural dyes for yourself, getting back to basics with colours directly from nature.

There is something to be said about the process of creation. It is not only the final product that is important, but what led to its creation. We want you to experience how it feels to make something with your own two hands.

And why should that be complicated? The truth is that for hundreds of years before synthetic dyes came along, common folk were creating their own dyes.

We’re bringing back the lost art of natural dyeing. It’s easy to buy what you need at the stores just like everybody else, but when you dye your own projects you come away with something truly unique.

Explore the possibilities at Oogst.
