Materials for the spring pattern project just arrived from Maiwa Handprints! Patterns in making… I will try Katazome printing again. Tried it before in Japan and also been experimenting. Now with some proper tools.

Patience is a big part of making research. Sorting out and documenting results and facts takes time. But doing it together on a flying carpet makes more sense. Right now we are building up our experience and knowledge for launching a new business model that includes taking care of the resources and implement a sustainable chain for garments.

164 Shades of natural colours in 4 days. Research and sampling using only natural dye pigments for different qualities. Extracting, reusing and over dyeing with the beautiful plants and pigments that I we bought in India such as marigold, Indian madder, euphatorium, walnut, turmeric, logwood, bresilia and pomegranate.

Sampling for upcoming project. Working on a library of natural dyes in collaboration with @saramariacarl. Also continuing with the “Collecting colour 2018” project. Made a super powerful indigo vat this time, named India. Each natural vat is an adventure and I have been through ups and downs.
