Pourquoi tant de colorants nocifs puisque que toutes les couleurs sont dans la nature ?
Garance, Indigo, grenade, curcuma, mûrier, oignon, hibiscus ou figuier des couleurs éclatantes et sublimes sans produits nocifs c'est faisable car les techniques sont millénaires et applicables à nos techniques de production à grande échelle.
Why so much toxic dying when all colors are in nature ?
Madder, indigo, pomegranate, curcuma, mulberry, onion, hibiscus or fig tree, all bright and astonishing colors. Made from thousands years old techniques that are applicable to our modern larger scale production.

#naturaldye solar dyebath made from #willow leaves brewed before I left for the Willow Gathering in Decorah (a basketry event). Gave it a healthy dose of soda ash after filtering out the leaves to minimize fermentation while I was gone. No time to dye this week, so I will check the pH today and give it a cautious sniff.
Still Summer Fayre prepping...Only 2 sleeps. This is a chart that will be a part of my display. I still need to iron 70 tote bags and make a small indigo vat. The indigo I always use was sold out so I had to order another one and I am dreading that it might not work for some reason so I need to do a test run just to be sure it's ok. Few more smaller jobs need doing as well but after that I might be able to breathe again. #naturaldye#writtenincloth

I'm working on some velvet cushions in my favorite color. I'm feeling more comfortable in my designee skin (step by step). I love vintage goodies, but I also love making things and decorating. And textiles are just my 💛
Truth and lies. The colourful and bright textiles of Rajasthan hide a murky background. Over the years, the pre-dominance of toxic naphthol and azoic dyes has resulted in the creation of beautiful textiles at the cost of increasing ground water pollution. 45% of ground water in the Churu district that we work is saline and not potable. This is a direct result of toxic textile effluents and urea-based agricultural practice. We are in the process of training locals in the use of naphtha-free and natural dyes. We welcome any advice and technical support in this area. @jaipurrugsfoundation @allianceartisan @thekindcraft @borderandfall @ideoorg @yoshiko_wada_ #sustainableliving#chooseartisan#handcrafted#naturaldye#socent#ethicalfashion#sustainablefashion#slowfashionmovement#whomademyclothes#handmade#handdyed
Let's dive to the deep and admire the corals which represent some of the world's most spectacular beauty. For without them many of the sea's most exquisite species will not survive.
