Dye & block print on Dye-Lishus® cotton shaded stripe

Feb 26th 2016

Here are some close-up photos of the shaded stripe fabric dyed with natural dyes by Melanie of Wild Earth Textiles, then block printed by Heather of Patch Studios. We collaborated on some picnic sets, a 36" square tablecloth and 2 napkins, for the Connections exhibit in Asheville a few months ago. The photos were taken by Melanie.

The dyes are black walnut hulls, coreopsis, Hopi sunflower, and madder, all grown in the Warren Wilson College dye garden.
