Really informative post about ecoprinting on synthetic fabric. Visit Obovate Designs blog for more about ecoprinting and dyeing.
I was out last weekend to shop for some leggings. With luck, I also found some plain white tights. They are just perfect for this idea that I had in mind for some time. The tights were pre-washed and then contact printed with a mélange of botanical: peach, rose, eucalyptus, sumac, rue, oak, lemon, daisies, and onion skins. The results turned out fabulously and we also made a video to record the process.
The exciting moment for me was when I opened the first bundle, which revealed that the process I used had worked wonderfully. Below are pictures of the different types of plant materials used in this project.
