Sometimes we stain our clothes with food and then comes a moment, when we can take advantage of that.

When I first dyed a yardage of fabric, that gave my screen print project an orange undertone, I realised, I could now do anything with my fabrics. Then I started to screen print all the colours on the coin purses, and with every next experiment, I felt more free in my designs and colour choices. That now holds for years and now I moved on to experimenting with natural dyes and pigments and this world keeps getting better.

I got a beautiful silk velvet fabric from a local fabric store, that is so soft and beautiful in itself, but still felt it needed something more. Then I remembered, I could give it a dip in the indigo and a little tie dye in the indigo and as another experiment, a bath in two table spoons of turmeric. That turned the velvet into something really special. 

 

My kitchen turned into a dye studio and the ice cream in my my freezer gave way to fruit peels and skins. I will not go into details, how you can dye with indigo or turmeric, but dyeing with avocado skins really deserves a whole new post.
