Ecoprinted and handcrafted wares made locally, ethically, naturally
A LOOK AT MY PROCESSES
Each item I make begins as a plain piece of fabric. Using leaves and bark that I gather locally on my wanderings and bicycle rides around Featherston I lay, wrap and cook designs and patterns into the fabric - a method of pigment transfer called eco-printing.
Plants impart their own natural pigments into the fabric. Factors like seasonality and location affect the final results, so each piece of fabric is a unique, creative experiment lead by nature.
My dye-pots are filled with lichen, bark, leaves, fruits, vegetables and flowers in order to create backgrounds for my eco-prints or more solid-coloured fabrics.
