Our Process: Hand dyed and printed goods
Here's an example of part of the process to make this top (and all of our dyed printed collection):
Step 1: Take photos of beautiful flowers-I usually do this at Longwood Gardens, but am looking for new spots all the time!
Step 2: Transform the photo into 'Jianzhi' a Chinese folk art form of paper cutting. (No lasers are involved here.)
Step 3: Prepare the image to be exposed onto a silk screen for hand printing.
Step 4: Prepare the clothing/cloth by layering up colors in a modified shibori technique resulting in an ombre effect.
Step 5: Pull the Silk Screen Prints on the cloths/ Be careful not to allow the screen to move at all.
Step 6: Heat Set and share beautiful new products!
