A few of June's natural dyeing projects and experiments. The Godetia flowers were a gift on my birthday. They lasted much longer than I ever thought they would. I kept trimming their stems and adding fresh water and they seemed to get a new life each time. When it was finally time to let them go, I decided to try bundling them with some cotton taping and hemp. The results were so lovely. I restrung my favorite necklace that I originally made many years ago using the beautiful antique monk pendant that my mother brought me from Thailand. It seemed fitting to use the cotton taping which was dyed from the flowers she gave me.

The naturally dyed scarves are available in my shop. The dusty, peachy, pink scarves were dyed with avocado seeds and skins. The taupe grey scarves were dyed with powder ground from the hulls of black walnuts. They're printed with two of my new patterns in an antique metallic gold. 

cutch & sandalwood

I naturally dyed scarves last week with Cutch and Sandalwood. The colors are dreamy – neutral mocha brown and the palest blush pink. Both Cutch and Sandalwood are trees native to Asia. The dye stuff comes from the heartwood of these trees. I'm really enjoying the process of naturally dyeing fabric. It's slow and satisfying. Planning to do a bit more in the Fall months ahead. In the mean time, these cotton gauze scarves are in my SHOP. They're screen printed in antique gold with my 'Meditation' pattern – a repeating seated Buddha – randomly arranged along the length of the scarf.

The second I saw the first flower coming up through the dirt, it felt like new life was breathed into me. That was one LONG winter and I'm so happy that spring is here. My head is actually already in summer, hence the bright colors in my shop. Probably the brightest yet for Untold Imprint. It felt right though, especially since I'll be at the very festive Waldorf School of Princeton May Fair in a couple of weeks with all my new wares...
