Jen Luton

Artist & Owner

Drunken Forest Tie Dye is an Alaskan woman-owned business located on the Kenai Peninsula.  I started exploring the art of tie dye in 2008 and became enamored. I always enjoyed fairs and festivals, and in 2011 the stars aligned and I set up my first booth at the Homer Farmers Market in Homer, Alaska. Now, we rarely miss a festival, particularly those that promote artisan made. Over the years, my business has grown and turned into a satisfying and successful trade, one where the lifestyle is part of the profit. Thanks to my many friends, family and fans, I am able to pursue my passion, and explore Alaska while making that elusive living in the arts.

By purchasing my vibrant, handmade tie dye, you support small business, help diversify our rural Alaskan econony and allow a living artist to profit directly from her creativity and determination. I aim to create a unique piece of art that is a fun, enduring and positive addition to your wardrobe. I guarantee superior construction with an artisans touch. 

I am further committed to supporting ethical business practices by purchasing almost all of my garments made in the USA.

You can find me traveling around South Central Alaska saturating the market with my wearable art all summer long at farmers markets and music festivals.  Starting in 2016, Drunken Forest Tie Dye is proud to be a vendor at The Alaska State Fair! In 2016 I kicked off my online shop, offering a select assortment of my hand dyed items to those who are unable to make it to any of my events. When I am not dyeing, I am living it up in the Last Frontier.
