About Menck EcoPrint
In collaboration with Fabricnation

In 2020 I started collaborating with Jane Solomon from Fabricnation, to develop a more eco-friendly Menck range, wherein each garment is unique and does not involve chemical processes in its colour dyeing aspect. The EcoPrinting process involves placing sustainably picked indigenous (fynbos) as well as eucalyptus plants aesthetically on a garment, rolling it into a tight bundle and boiling or steaming it in copper/iron water to release the plant pigment. Please note, no EcoPrint garment is the same, and therefore cannot be repeated.

Care Instructions

EcoPrinted fabric colours can change in different light and will fade slightly over time, but for the best care:

  • Handwash in cold water – do not soak or scour.

  • Line dry away from direct sunlight.

  • To best preserve the print, use “woolite”, or a gentle eco friendly washing detergent.

  • Do not use detergents with bleaching agents.

  • Iron on the reverse side of the garment.

  • Do not place or store in sunlight (UV rays).

  • Wash as seldom as possible.
