I received an email from my lovely friend Parusha a few days ago asking for eco dye tips and tricks. I practised A LOT of natural and eco dyeing whilst at uni and consider myself to be somewhat of a pro scavenger for dyeing materials, strawberries are a particular favourite of mine. Whilst thinking of some techniques for Parusha I remembered by favourite from my uni days. Simply scattering petals on to cloth, rolling it all up using a branch and steam the flower and fabric wrap into oblivion. I found a great online tutorial for this on the Free People blog which you can read here.
Here are some very pretty examples of my natural dyeing - I will be making these into zip bags soon. Stand by for a block printing tutorial featuring these fabrics.
