--About the Process--
The silk has been dyed using botanical ingredients. A priority is placed on water and energy efficiency in our dye studio. The resulting fabrics have a richness of tone, a soft hand, and the subtle color variations that occur naturally in the dye pot.
Marbling is the craft making prints on fabric using floating pigments. The pigments, water-based acrylic in this case, are dropped onto the surface of water thickened with carrageenan seaweed. The colors are manipulated into patterns, and when fabric is draped across the water's surface it absorbs the pigments in their lively patterns, looking as if they are still dancing on water.
