Salt - Buckthorn
This handmade lavender bag is dyed with buckthorn to give it this lovely lemony hue. The 'salt' motif is created using a resist technique of clamping two triangular shapes onto the folded cloth during dyeing.
The dyed outer sleeve is made from handloomed ahimsa silk, and the lavender bag within is made from recycled cotton filled with 50g fragrant French lavender. The sleeve is designed like a pillow case, so that it can be removed from the lavender pouch within and hand washed. When laid flat the bag measures 15cm x 15cm.
