Natural dyeing relies on natural botanical alchemy, and many factors can influence its outcome, such as how the plant is harvested and grown, the pH of the water, plus how much rain and sun the plant receives. The timing and application of dye solution are also important in the dyeing process. Natural colours are never flat, but change in different lighting, and respond to shifting environment – they are very much alive, unique and dynamic. The many variables involved in natural dyeing thus produce a wide range of shades, hues and prints, making each piece special and unique in its way.
