SHOP ECO PRINT HERE
ATTENTION: DURING THE SUMMER OF 2023 I WILL NOT BE SELLING MY ECO PRINTS ON MY WEBSITE AS I CONCENTRATE ON ART FAIRS IN OHIO. PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE A QUERY.My home page has a list of shows.
I carry scarves of silk, rayon and wool in various sizes. I print on clothing that is up- cycled from thrift stores in various sizes. All the work is one of a kind, hand printed and dyed by me. The clothing is difficult to sell online as each piece is a different brand so sizing is not consistent. Please check out my instagram as that is the most up to date!
I do commissions! Bring me a piece of clothing and I will create an eco print on it. Bring me flowers and leaves from a special centerpiece, funeral arrangement or your garden and I will print it on a scarf, make a wall hanging or special piece of clothing for you.
HERE IS A BASIC DESCRIPTION OF HOW TO MAKE AN ECO PRINT
The colors and prints in these fabrics come from natural dyes found in local plants, vegetables and flowers. The plants are layered onto the natural fabrics, (silk, wool, cotton and linen) rolled onto a copper pipe and tightly bound with twine. The bundles are then steamed in my turkey roaster. This process creates a permanently transferred pigment from the plant material onto the cloth. No inks or paints are used.
Botanical or Eco printing combines the historical methods used in natural dyeing with contact print techniques. The results are stunning plant portraits captured on fabric and paper. My love of nature makes me conscious of keeping the process as gentle on the environment as I can. Plant material is composted after use.
