PLANT DYE PROCESS
The fabric is pre treated with alum allowing the leaf imprints to become permanent. I take all the leaves and rusty metal, place them over the fabric, then bundle it all around a copper pipe. the bundle is steamed for 2 hours. Check out the video in this listing to see what happens when I open the bundles!
Care of your plant dyed item!
Because of the nature of eco dyeing, some irregularities can occur in the colour, this is part of the unique beauty of plant dyed fabrics. To maintain the life of your plant dyed item, store and dry out of direct sunlight and machine wash with cool water and gentle eco friendly soap.
Colours look different on different screens. I do my best to have pictures that show the true colour, but shades may be lighter or darker in real life than what is on your screen.
