Linen napkin dyed with Madder and Himalayan Rhubarb



This damask linen napkin has been dyed with Madder and Himalayan Rhubarb natural dyes. In addition, it is an upcycled piece of fabric! The designs were made by ecoprinting with local leaves. This fabric has a woven, floral damask design.

The size, of this napkin is approximately 40cm x 40cm (16″ x 16 “), with a finished hem. The process of natural dyeing is lengthy. I take great care in creating my designs.

Renew, Preserve, Recycle

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

I source many of my natural dyes locally. Additionally, I have grown some in my own garden. Other dyes are bought from reliable companies.

My Madder crop is in it’s second year. Next year it will be ready to harvest. I’m looking forward to seeing and using my own Red dye!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

This upcycled linen fabric is ideal, as a piece 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. So many possibilities!

Indigo dyed and resist technique on linen napkins, which were sewn together, to make a unique scarf (below). This is an example of how these upcycled napkins can be created into a stunning and personal item.

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.
