Hipster Limited Edition Cosmic Compost Botanical Dye

$ 36.00
Select my color — Cosmic Compost

Made in USA

Organic Cotton


Our latest collaboration with SlowDigz is dyed using compost, yes, compost!

The Cosmic Compost print is created with used dye material. Most of the used dyestuff comes from past Botanical Bundle Dye workshops and other dye projects. The used dye material from steamed onion skins to madder root is saved, frozen, and when ready to create Cosmic Compost pieces, is mixed with spent flower petals and given a light dusting of iron salts.

The results are abstract patterns of grays and blacks intermixed with pops of color, including pink and purple from the natural pigments found in cochineal and logwood. The addition of iron shifts the mood of the dye material and creates a dramatic palette reminiscent of the cosmos


Lisa Rogers is the owner and natural dyer behind SlowDigz in California. She's inspired by nature, hand dying on natural fibers using raw botanicals, insects, and metals. She uses flowers, leaves, stems, and roots from her own dye garden along with local leaves to create color and design. Follow Lisa on her botanical journey on Instagram @SlowDigz and check out her website


We recommend a cold water wash with pH neutral soap. Natural colors can shift and fade over time. Dry out of direct sunlight to prolong colors. Do not dry clean. 

No exchanges or returns on limited edition pairs. Please message us with any questions about fit if this is your first pair of Thunderpants! 

The Hipster is sized from XS - 4XL and is designed to sit in the natural crease at the top of the leg, cover your bum, and reach to the hip. We recommend the Hipster if you are flat in the tummy and/or short in the rise to the waist. For many of us, the Hipster does not reach over the apex of our tummy roll at which point the natural laws of gravity take over and the Hipster will roll down. In this situation, we have a solution in the slightly higher waisted, original option.

Thunderpants 90% organic cotton/10% spandex fabric is sturdy, very stretchy, and has great retention to give our garments just enough stretch and bounce back. It helps the undies to stay up and on, and the other garments to keep their shape without sagging or bagging. We use the same soft organic cotton blend to cut our binding into a wide strip instead of using elastic so there is never any irritating elastic against your skin. All the garments are made locally and lovingly in Portland, OR.

Make sure to wash these alone or with like colors for the first few washes (don't wash them with whites right away!). The dyeing process does leave a faint scent, this is not scented detergent, we only use un-scented when washing before and after dyeing. The smell of the dyeing process will fade over time.

To preserve the vibrant colors and life of the fabric we suggest you do not soak or bleach your Thunderpants items. Use a gentle detergent in a cold machine wash and dry your Thunderpants on the line (they will survive drying on low, but may fade a bit and cut down slightly on longevity). If you do wash warm or dry, make sure not to use too much heat as heat will break down the spandex!

Beautiful buttttt...

These are so pretty, but the sizing seems small compared to the other Mediums size I have from you guys. Is that possible?

AMAZING undies. Worth every penny.

Comfy, supportive, no riding up, rolling down, or creeping inside. I ordered a size up from my usual size S after reading some reviews about the leg openings and M fit perfectly. If you're on the fence about size, I say go ahead and size up. Love that they are organic and made in USA. These make it a pleasure to wear underwear. I am a total convert - currently replacing all my undies with these.
