“From Field to Fabric” 2023
130 samples of silk
38 dyes from plants, insects and sea snails
4 different mordants
2 types of Ph assists
In this work I want to show that it is possible to create any color, using only natural ingredients. From silver using Eucalyptus, to logwood purples and Indigo blues.
With the right knowledge and craftsmanship, natural dyes are the key to supporting sustainable practices in fashion, as it promotes the use of locally sourced and produced materials, reduces the use of harmful chemicals, and supports traditional crafts and communities.
