Seed - Weld & Indigo
This handmade lavender bag was first dyed with a mix of weld and fustic which produced a pale brown, and the over-dyed with indigo to give this really wonderful teal colour. The 'seed' design is created using a resist technique of clamping half-circle discs 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.
