Grevillea robusta, also known as silky oak is an evergreen flowering tree with fern-like leaves, and striking yellow-orange comb-like flowers. Note: The flowers and fruit are poisonous and can cause skin irritation, so care and caution should be taken into consideration when handling this plant. Wear glove for protection, it is advisable to cook your bundles outdoor.
I am always learning with my eco-dyeing, and fascinated with the results coming out from my dye pot. I called this my “dye pot journey”. I have had some beautiful pieces, and some bad and unexpected experiment. I never gave up, as this is all part of eco-dyeing–it is addictive! Below are results of grevillea robusta leaf prints on different types of fabric.
