Gallery of Work > Eco-Print and Eco-Dyed Scarves

These eco-print and eco-dyed scarves were dyed with a variety of leaves collected from Roanoke Island (aspen, blackberry, catawba, dogwood, eucalyptus, fern, grape, ginkgo, maple, oak, pecan, rose, sassafras, sumac, tulip poplar, walnut). Some of the plant prints were highlighted with bright acid dye colors, a technique called "medium print', which helps to bring out every detail of the leaves, others are "eco-dyed" when the plant prints are a direct result of the plants on the wool or silk. All scarves are very organic and a special unique piece of wearable art.
