the daily dyepot day 2

Another beautiful day on my Island home away from home.  This dye pot is full of gum leaves and a native quinine, they make black and brown.

We went to Bartalumba bay to collect some mangrove root, which gives a reddy brown colour.

the leaves and roots we collected are wrapped in the fabric

 then put in the pot

we are still surprised and delighted every time we open one of the beautiful bundles to see how the silk fabric has been transformed with rust and leaves
