Natural Dyes...

One more thing:  If you are interested in natural dyes, you might be interested in this post on MAIWA


  1. I wanted to let you know about the dress fabric: it was a candelight polyester with rosebuds embroidered on it. It looked and felt like silk dupion. Makes it easier to clean and much easier to store!

  2. I have used the maiwa dyes at the school for a number of years now and the one thing that is truly predictable about them is that they are never exactly the same from one year to the next. Even using the same dye powder from the same container will yield different results. It might be more consistant if we had distilled water instead of city treated water but it is always exciting to see the variations that arise!
