Rachel Bratcher, Creative Director
Martha Alvarado, Operations Manager/ Irene Wachtler, Studio Operations
Ritual Dyes was created in Rachel Bratcher’s kitchen after she became so obsessed with knitting, she started dreaming up the exact colors of yarn she wanted to use in her projects.
As a Libra in constant balance, Rachel had a need for colors that were wearable & subtle but also very special. Drawing inspiration from nature, the great Pacific Northwest, nostalgia and the occult.
Rachel lives in Portland, Oregon with her partner, kids and an assortment of pets. Ritual Dyes has since moved out of the kitchen and welcomes visitors to the studio space in SE Portland.
