What is Eco-Printing?
Eco-printing is a sustainable technique of dying natural fabrics, by extracting pigments directly from plants.
The leaves and flowers are carefully selected for their eco-printing characteristics, such as interesting shapes, vibrant colours or levels of tannins present.
The imprints are created by combining plants with heat, pressure, minerals and time, locking the unique composition permanently into the fabric.
Revealing your print is always an exciting experience!
