distinct prints and color hues in light greens, and browns.


I have been going through my closet for old clothing to practice on eco dyeing or contact printing. Well, not just any old clothing, but also bed linens. When I ran out of my own resources, I make a bee line to the thrift stores, or asked my friends for their giveaways.

It was fun laying out the plant materials on the fabric and bundled it up for the dye pot. The best part of it was opening the bundle and gently peeling off each leaf to see their prints. It’s a wonderful feeling!
