Did you know that during the yuletide season the garbage we generate increases by 30 percent?
Majority of the trash is composed of gift wrapping paper, which by the way, is not recyclable because of all the additives in it.
So instead of splurging on glossy and shiny paper, get creative and sustainable by considering these simple gift wrapping techniques without the green guilt:
-Use old paper bags or newspaper
-Put your presents in reusable bags or furoshiki fabric, or better yet
-Skip the wrap altogether especially if you are giving away food, plants and other living things.

적당한 소음이 감사하다
어제의 도심의 집회 시위 관광객 ...
오늘까지 울림이 시끄럽다
조용히 따뜻한 물에
색을 물드리며 조화로움을 본다는 것은 또한 행복이다
저희 기술이 #신기술 이라 하지만 #천연염색 임으로 화학염색과 같을 거라는 생각을 하시면 안됩니다
#화학염색 의 단점인 피부발진을 일으키거나 환경오염의주범이거나 물을 많이 사용한다거나 에너지차원이나 건강차원에서 보다 옳은 선택이 될 수 있다는 것으로
장점이라면 색도가 많이 올라간다는것, 혼합이 자유롭다는것, 작업이 쉽다는것, 견뢰도가 기존보다는 좀 더 낫다는것, 알카리를 사용하지 않는다는것.... 등등입니다
자연에서 얻은것으로 일정기간 사용하다 자연으로 돌아가게하는것이 우리의 방식입니다
If you know me personally you might already know I find it difficult to get rid of anything, well today it was the juice from a can of beetroot. A new low? Or a new way of wool dyeing?! I later sprinkled on some turmeric powder hoping for a speckled effect.**if your interested** I added the juice to equal parts vinegar to help the dye stick, then poured it into a spray bottle. Now I’ve left the skeins to dry outside and hopefully when I get home later il have beautiful naturally dyed skeins! #indiedyedyarn#inskeinia#speckledyarn#natural#naturaldye#naturaldyes#beetroot#tumeric#australianyarn
💙Thank you all, it is coming true💙

Today has been one big blur. Grey skies and muddled thoughts of Christmas projects yet to finish... and maybe I didn’t have enough for lunch, who knows. But I slowed down long enough to prep a print on scrap silk as the sun set on one side of the yard and goats bleated on the other. Finally I can think clearly... just in time for dinner.
Eucalyptus Dye = Dark Blue. I really struggled to price these bags. It's an Organic Cotton Tote dyed with a plant but to me these bags are so much more than that. I sourced good quality organic cotton bags which were ethical and fairly traded. I then pre treat the bags with soya milk which I make myself. The soya milk process takes me over a week in total with three dips in the milk along with allowing dry time and time for it to 'bond'. Hours of foraging go into sourcing the ingredients for each bag. Practicing the dye extraction process is lengthy and to make one dye when I find a colour I like takes me three days in total. I then dye the bags which takes another couple of days. The final stage is leaving the dye on the bag unwashed for at least a week before washing it with a natural detergent. I LOVE this process and enjoy it every single time. A different result is achieved and no two bags are the same. I hope the price I decided on of £10.00 seems reasonable to you. 💛
At 4am while feeding my babe I discovered Brazil based @flaviaaranha_, and now I am mad in love with all of their naturally dyed clothing. The typical “eco print” isn’t usually my style, but they use plant materials in such a subtle and classy way. This fabric is printed with onion skins, just like the napkins I’ve been working on recently. I am so happy to see someone else using onion skins as they are such a unique and under-utilised source of colour for printing and dyeing 🔶 #sundayinspiration#naturalcolour
Dentro del marco de @designweekmex, realizamos una residencia en Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca en conjunto con @pedro_cerisola para crear tapetes llenos de color, sentimientos, tradiciones y diseño contemporáneo. Como toda idea, estas creaciones comenzaron en papel hasta terminar el proceso y admirarlas de forma física en el @mnantropologia durante la semana de diseño en octubre.
gorgeous ruby red dye made from avocado pits 🥑❤️ as i posted in my stories, i spent most of the day dyeing second hand fabrics with avocado skins and pits. dyeing has become a lovely winter ritual for me lately. it's time consuming and tedious, buy i've translated that into extra self care time. i catch up on podcasts, do a little sewing, and read books while keeping my eye on the dye pot. the truth is it's winter and there's not much plant stuff going on right now. no harvests to put up, nothing growing, nothing to forage for. so my homesteading practice is turning towards the home - mending things that need fixed, planning the coming year, writing, organizing, wrapping up the last of the infusing tinctures. collecting food scraps for dye stuffs has been a nice hands on ritual in these slow and quiet days. . .
Have you ever slept on a silk pillowcase? Silk bedding has long been known by royals and a few wise and elegant grandmothers as a means to prevent hair breakage and facial wrinkling as its surface is so smooth. Hypo-allergenic and very breathable, they may just have a positive impact on your sleep!
These pillows are all hand-dyed with natural dyes and mineral oxides. Often, the silk has visited a number of different dye baths, for rich and complex colours. They fit a standard queen size pillowcase.
Special pricing for a set of 2.
