I eco printed this dress with dried eucalyptus leaves and fresh Agonis, and over dyed it in brazilwood dye bath. The dried leaves were pre-soaked in some water before printing. I am thrilled with the result and happy to share.

vibrant reds from cinerea and sage greens from agonis

I love the results of this one—reminds me of a Chinese painting of bamboo and plums

Agonis flexuosa ‘Jervis Bay Afterdark’, or after dark peppermint tree.
