Natural Dye & Eco Printing

Eco-printing is a technique where plants, leaves, and flowers leave their shapes, color, and marks on fabric.Plant material bundled inside of cloth is steamed to release the dye found naturally inside the plant, creatinga contact print in the shape of the leaf or flower used. These contact prints are referred to as “eco-prints.”Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind

Natural dyes are obtained from natural sources and derived from plant materials. Most are of plant origin and extracted from roots, wood, flowers, and leaves. Natural dyes is a response to concerns about synthetic dyes and environmental pollution. The advantages of using natural dyes are biodegradable, non-toxic, environmentfriendly, and easy extraction of colors by boiling the plants and soaking them with alcohol and vinegar.
