3rd of September 2020
Yesterday I was invited to Gudrun Sjödén design to talk about natural dyeing and some of the ongoing projects that I'm involved in. I think its important to share knowledge and also to discuss the ups and downs in the textile production chain.
For me and Sara its important to be fully transparent with whom and how we produce our crafted textiles. We also want to share our knowledge and our sources with others. Hopefully also highlight the various textile crafts that we are involved in.
We just received an update from Jamthada, Kutch – the dyeing of our indigo yarns has finally started. The master dyer Naresh Shiju lives and works in Bhudodi village outside Bhuj. He is a well known dyer whom also worked for the NGO Khamir in Bhuj.
Naresh works exclusively with natural pigments in his vats.
We are so much looking forward to visit him and share thoughts about dyes and fibers. Cross our fingers that it will happen in 2021!

Experimenting with resist printing and painting. Using a paste made of clay, epsom salt and gum arabic. So excited to see the results on different fibers and qualities.
Soon time to share some techniques and methods.

LUPINES – THIS WEEKS SURPRICE!
The leaves of the the lupines gives a florescent bright yellow colour. The flowers gives a faint tone of yellow. Be careful how you handle them since the lupines are invasive and threaten the survival of meadow flowers. Still so beautiful to watch and also to use as dye pigment for textiles. These lupines had "moved in" to our flower bed behind the workshop. They are now a part in the "From seed to dye project".

Today we have put the indigo plants in the flower bed with dye plants. Now they will be nursed over summer and harvested in August. We will then try several methods to extract indigo pigment.

We have received all the 21 selected pieces of Aachadiyas! 9 meters of fabrics that are used as table covers over several layers of jute fabric when block printing. The aachadiya fabrics are made of cotton and can be used for several months before they are rejected. During our Artist in Residence in Ajrakhpur we selected fabrics and also started with pattern making and made prototypes in collaboration with a tailor in Dohri village in the rural part of Kutch.
The beautiful traces of all the printed patterns cover the surface. And the fabrics becomes like a map of history.
We reuse the fabrics and will make a limited edition of kimonos that will be released in 2021. 40 pieces, each will be unique and carry its own story. Our aim is to reuse materials as well as support local crafts people and always work with as little impact on the environment as possible.
