New Looks are In – Part II
A few years back I studied briefly with hand-weaver and natural dye expert Catharine Ellis with whom I learned how to enrich cloth with plant- and insect-based colorants. This Spring I am finally introducing indigo-dyed cloth (as well as other natural colorants – post coming soon) into my wearable collections! Pieces include both straight immersion (solid indigo) and cloth pre-printed with natural dyes then overdyed with indigo. I’ll have more information in the future about all of the colorants I use in my work. Meanwhile, here are some pieces from that group. Fabrics: Linen, Hemp Knit, Cotton Net and Cotton Gauze (click on any image to open slideshow).
