As Featured In
Daphne is the natural dye artist and slow-fashion advocate behind AMACATA. Having been a garment developer for years within international sportswear companies, she made a career transition in August 2016.
The social venture mentorship program at Groundswell Community guided her in joining the revolution to address the problems of fast fashion.
AMACATA was derived from the mirror image of ATACAMA, … reflecting properties of the Desert: … raw, pure, natural landscape. Imagine such a space where you can make room for introspection.
Daphne’s handmade pieces have been lovingly created with natural materials. Her textile work incorporates the art of shibori, and dip-dye. Natural dyes include: avocado pits, logwood, quebracho green, madder, cochineal, walnut hulls, pomegranate peels, indigo, just to name a few.
