Natural dye experiments


       I’m experimenting a lot lately with natural dyes. So far logwood is my favourite dye. It gives beautiful shades of purple. I love its shades of gray on cotton, some kind of aged, stone washed look. This dress was inspired by ‘Felt United’ colours; it is seamless and made of 16 micron Merino wool, silk gauze and milk protein fibers. Hand dyed with a mix of logwood and redwood.

Moment of truth. I just love this times - work is done, dress is ready, now is time for some real magic...



 Logwood on cotton, just a happy accident.
