Exploring new things, places, techniques, materials and so on often begins with “What if…?” Let me share my recent journey into natural dyeing. It began with our Pomegranate bush that decided to ripen and open all its fruit at the same time. Harvesting a few baskets full: What to do with it? - Pomegranate jelly which left over two big pots of rinds. WHAT IF you just add tap water and fiber: Cotton as a sample for plant fibers, silk, and wool as a fiber from an animal. Get it slowly to boil on our stove which heats our atelier in the winter. WHAT IF you use it a second time? Again without any mordants. WHAT IF you add another natural dye - Tumeric? The pomegranate has already been used twice.
