It’s easy to appreciate this Indigo and ecoprinted linen napkin. This upcycled napkin has been hand dyed. Natural dyes on up-cycled linen napkins equal sustainable products. The size of this Indigo dyed linen table napkin is 43 cm x 45 cm (17″ x 18″)
This vintage linen was ecoprinted using leaves from my garden. It has been dyed with Indigo and some shibori stitching. It is repurposed fabric, which makes it sustainable and gives it a new life!
Refresh, Transform and Revitalize
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 links below show more examples of my up-cycled, naturally dyed fabrics.
Imagine, Design, Gratify
This beautiful, Indigo and ecoprinted linen napkin is ideal, as 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!
A Napkin as Napkin
Linen is my fabric of choice for several reasons. The fibre is very strong. To guarantee high quality and an enduring fabric, a lower thread count is needed. Since linen is faster drying than cotton, it is a great choice of fabric. Known for its absorbency, linen can absorb up to 20% of its weight, in moisture.
Elegant napkins and tablecloths are often made with fine linen. It is soft to the touch and easy to care for. Paired with an attractive linen tablecloth, dining becomes a special experience.
The process of Natural Dyeing
Firstly, the fabric must be scoured. Since Indigo does not require a mordant for the dye to adhere to the fabric, it may be put directly into the Indigo vat. However, if additional dye colours are required afterwards, the fabric must be mordanted first.
Indigo dye works differently than other natural dyes. The fabric is dipped into the Indigo vat many times, for varying lengths of time. More dips, in the indigo vat means the shade of blue is darker.
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.
