Last year I released a collection called 'Botanical Rainbow', with pieces created using naturally dyed recycled cotton cord and fashioned into various rainbow pieces.
I've been sitting on how they were achieved for a year now, so I think it's about time to share what dye stuffs were used to create these beautiful colours.
All material was pre-treated with soya milk and damp when added to their dye pots.
Peach - Avoado
Yellow - Turmeric
Green - Spirulina
Blue - Elderberries & iron
Purple - Elderberries
Brown - Avocado & iron
Come back for more soon - including a more in depth look at the dying process, collecting dye stuffs, new colours & experiments and making homemade iron water.
