Naturally Dyed Vivianne Vintage Linen & Cotton Jacket Size M/L #EOP2
Cochineal, well-known for its vibrant pink dye colour, is an insect shell widely used for natural dyeing. Lac is another dye derived from insect resin, a wonderful sticky material that creates a rich magenta/red/purple hue.
The process includes scouring the fabric, followed by the addition of a tannin, and finally, it gets mordanted. This three-step pre-treatment ensures that the natural dye will hold onto the fabric and that we will achieve the most vibrant colours from the dyed materials. Once the fabric is treated, the onion skins are added in a process called eco-bundle dyeing, which involves scrunching and then steaming the fabric with the onion skins inside. Once the dyeing is complete, fabric is rinsed and hung to dry.
