Salt - Madder
This handmade lavender bag is dyed with madder root to give this lovely pinkish hue. The 'salt' motif is created using a resist technique of clamping two trianglular shaps 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.
I dye the cloth for these bags in small batches, and while you may not receive the exact item pictured, you will receive on of its siblings from the same batch.
