An intriguing piece of Botanically hand Dyed Merino wool. It truly captures our wonderful Australian Bush highlighting its colour, textures, and warmth. The dying process will never allow it to be anything but one of a kind and unique. Framed pieces will be available @semaphore_community_market
on the 2nd of June or Message me. Limited collection 🌱
I have no words the joy I have creating these pieces, the process takes patience and it doesn’t always work (I’m still learning!) but when you get results like this it’s impossible to stop. I must recognise my fellow dyers who inspire me and teach me. And those who love and appreciate our earth and it’s wonder and the beauty it provides. 🌍🌍🌏🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍🌏
Tomasa and Andres Gutierrez doing a demo on traditional weaving where all the colors derive from plants and the infamous grana cochinilla: an insect that plagues cacti. The grana cochinilla is dried out crushed, which makes a vibrant red dye. This family is one of the few left in the town of Teotitlán Del Valle who still uses all natural and eco-friendly weaving methods. “Nature and the ancestors have offered us all this knowledge that must be passed down to the next generations” — Andres.
Also, something I absolutely adore about the resiliency and autonomy of this community of weavers is that they have sustained themselves and invested into paving roads, the construction of schools and other infrastructure for the town solely on their own with very minimal government help. This means that they are essentially self-sustained. They also don’t allow any foreigners to buy land—the only way you can reside there and own land is if you marry someone from the town. Indigenous autonomy and self-sustainability through communal agreements to invest in their community and local economy.

Natural dye colors in shades of fire, heat, and sunshine. Golden. Amber. Orange. Saffron. Coral. Crimson. Or onion skins on cotton with alum. One of my very favorite shades of orange. Almost turmeric, sometimes, really.
I’ve dyed this cotton tunic twice with onion skins. Each time it brightened then darkened. Unlike synthetic dyes I love the living aspect of plant color. It’s on a journey as long as I’m navigating. Color can be fixed or it can be continuously evolving through overdyeing and dyeing again and again.
With all my love for denim and indigo and all the blues, I have an equal affection for all the warm plant colors ranging from reds through oranges and all the glorious yellows. Goldenrod flowers on wool; calendula and marigolds on silk; and onion skins on cotton. Like wearing sunshine against a bright blue sky. #naturaldye #plantdye

Ich habe endlich wieder einmal etwas experimentiert mit Pflanzenfarben und bin mega begeistert von dem Ergebnis! Vor allem das grau/grün der Brennnessel hat es mir angetan, einfach weil ich das erste mal Baumwolle mit ihr gefärbt habe. Es ist so schön, wie die Farbe durch die Pflanze auf den Stoff kommt und auch was für eine wunderbare, erdige Kraft der Stoff dadurch erhält! Es ist um soviel lebendiger als die chemischen Farben und unglaublich heilsam, wenn man diesen Stoff dann trägt und die Pflanzenkraft auf diese wundervolle Weise bei sich hat!
Wer sich fürs färben mit Pflanzen interessiert, ich kann dir von Herzen das e-book von @rebeccadesnos
empfehlen! Ich habe es selber gekauft, als ich in Bali lebte, weil mich das Beizen mit Soyamilch so fasziniert hat und sie, soviel ich weiss, diese schonende Art zu beizen ins Leben gerufen hat. Ich freue mich schon auf viele weitere Farb Experimente und Pflanzen Bekanntschaften durchs färben❁
So this is how they turned out. Which one do you like better? The clean edge (rolled hem) or fringed edge? I can’t decide.
Oh, by the way, these handkerchiefs were made entirely without electricity. They are 100% handmade: we grew the cotton, hand-spun the yarn, hand-wove the fabric, hand-dyed (and drew) the fabric, and sewed it by hand 🖐

Collected these flowers from the ground under the Jacaranda tree in front of my apartment yesterday morning in hopes that they would be a resourceful dye for me to use while they are in bloom. Unfortunately, I had no such luck in a resulting color, but it did make me feel like a flower child and my kitchen sure smelled lovely.
