Eco-printing is a technique in which plants, leaves, and flowers leave their shapes, marks, and color on fabric. Plant material bundled inside of cloth is steamed or boiled to release the dye found naturally inside the plant, creating a contact print in the shape of the leaf or flower used. Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind. Every leaf is placed by hand, creating a distinctive pattern and color palette. Then the fabric, with the plant material inside, is tightly rolled around a pipe or stick. The 'bundles' are tossed into a steamer or a pot of water before it releases the dye out of the plant, coloring the fabric next to the leaf. The colors are revealed as the plant material is lifted from the unwrapped fabric. Garment production follows the natural rhythm of seasons, which is why certain plants, flowers, or a certain color combination may not become available again until the next growing season. Eco-printing requires immaculate attention to detail and everything involved in the process is naturally dyed: silk, wool, cashmere, linen, and cotton.
