We have had so many requests and messages from customers about eco-printing, slow textiles and eco-bundling! It seems that there are lots of you out there who have been admiring the eco-printing phenomenon from the sidelines and would love to give it a go but aren’t quite sure where to start.

Because we can’t resist the chance to get the whole world converted to dye-it-yourself textiles adventures we’ve put together a new kit that is a simple introduction to this fascinating and satisfying process.

We’ve called our new kit ‘Just Add Leaves’ because it’s really that simple. Inside the kit you’ll find a luxurious silk scarf, one of our new natural dyestuffs, cord, wrapping tube and our trademark comprehensive instructions. I’ll also be putting a short ‘pictorial’ (a visual tutorial!) on the blog shortly.

In the meantime, here’s a quick slideshow of a couple of samples Miriam and I made (thorough product testing is an essential part of the process, obviously 😉 ).

Miriam also put some great pics on her Facebook page (check out Miriam’s amazing weaving, spinning and dyeing while you’re there, too!)

If you’d like to find out more about natural dyeing, check out our excellent range of books including India Flint’s Eco Color in the shop. We also have a range of other natural dye kits as well as individual extracts and our new natural dyestuffs. For mordants and colour modifiers, see our mordants page here.
