Description

This unmatched cotton fabric has been hand dyed with natural dyes and eco-print technique. Truly unusual in colour and design, it is an unparalleled textile.

The leaf designs are created by ecoprinting technique https://maijazemitis.com/eco-printing-or-botanical-printing/

A natural chemical reaction between the foliage and dyes has caused the imprints to appear.

Envision, Create, Delight

This sublime cotton fabric with eco prints is an ideal fabric for a sewing project, such as part of a quilt. Or it can become a part of a clothing item, scarf, change purse, pillow cover, handbag. These are examples of how my up-cycled napkins can be created into stunning and personal items. So many possibilities! https://maijazemitis.com/repurposing-vintage-naturally-dyed-napkins/

Certainly, it can also be used as a table napkin, for your high end dining pleasure!

The possibilities are only limited by one’s imagination and creativity.

Renew, Preserve, Recycle

Sustainable methods give new life to this up-cycled fabric. Renewal means that a new item is created. And landfills have a bit less added to them.

The process of Natural Dyeing

Firstly, the fabric must be scoured. Then it must be mordanted in order for the colour to adhere or “bite” into the substrate.

My fabrics have been lovingly dyed and designed, with the commitment and skill of an accomplished artist.

Each item is dyed separately, which makes them different from others, in both colour and design. Be assured, that each item is unique.
