#ecologicaltextiles

Yesterday, when I took this photo, may have been the last day the ground, with all the lovely fallen apples, was visible for the season, for this morning all is white. I printed this silk with a hodgepodge of leaves left over from other work, and really like the soft result against the Dyer’s Chamomile background.

I use pre-loved natural fibre sweaters (mostly wool and cashmere) that the thrift stores can’t sell (due to holes, stains, etc.) and turn them into one of a kind wrist warmers and other useful items, and keep them out of the landfill so they can enjoy a new life. These wrist warmers will be in my online store this evening.

Finally I am able to tell you about the most wonderful working project I was into at last summer: @hempea.fi is a new home textile brand from Northern Finland and all of their beautiful products are made of 100 % hemp fabric. In this era of mass consumption and synthetic fibers, working with this kind of genuine and responsibly behaving brand is a huge privilege. I'm so happy to introduce you @hempea.fi because their products are surely ecology, simply beautiful, timeless, modern and very sophisticated. There is an exclusive discount code for all of you sweet readers of Yellow Mood - it's found from my post (link in bio)! #yellowmoodlifestyle #ecological #hempea #hempeafi #hemp #hempfabric #hempbedsheets #bedsheets #ecologicalhome #bedroom #interior #scandinavianhome #hamppukangas #hamppuvuodevaatteet #sisustus #organictextiles #ecologicaltextiles #finnishdesign

Getting some product photography done, while the weather still allows for outdoor work, for the launch of my new web site and online store in the next few days. I love the textures of this time of year.

I’ve been very precise with a lot of my surface designs lately, but for this piece, I went for a more organic, layered effect, and I love the way it turned out. Dyed first with natural #indigo.

All native species of the Acadian Forest ecosystem where I live - Red Maple, Sugar Maple, Striped Maple, Beech, and Birch. I am also slowly reintroducing many native species on my property that have been largely extirpated over the years - cut down for wood or because people didn’t appreciate their ecological importance - including Black Walnut, Staghorn Sumac, Witchhazel, Red Oak, Wild Raisin, and Chokecherry. I’ll be planting native species until the day I die.

The wind has been howling all night, and it bucketed down rain which is now turning to snow. It won’t stick, as it’s still mild out for the time of year, but it’s a thoroughly miserable morning, so I am grateful for simple comforts such as the wonder of plant pigments on lovely fibres from the Earth.

Frosty morning. Apples still clinging to branches. A few #ecoprint and #indigo #shibori throw pillows for this weekend’s Deck The Halls artisan fair. I hope everyone is toastier than I was taking this picture!

Super fine merino #wool with ferns, maple, and lilac leaves. I’ll have a large selection of beautiful silk and wool shawls/scarves, as well as a range of other #organic, #plantdyed #finetextiles and paper art at the upcoming Deck The Halls artisan fair at Sydney’s historic St Patrick’s Church Museum on the Esplanade (Friday through Sunday). Hope to see you there!

I don’t have any chestnut trees growing nearby and, by the time I find some leaves fallen under a few rather gorgeous Horse Cheatnut specimens in the town nearest to me, they’re pretty withered and don’t work so well for whole leaf printing. But there are always some individual leaflets I can rescue... #foreverbrigit #leafprint #printingwithleaves #ecoprint #ecologicaltextiles #sustainabletextiles #madeincapebreton #vccreates #ilovecbcraft #organic #slowtextiles #mylocaldyeplants #handmade

I really like printing with bug-eaten leaves. As long as you can still tell what kind of leaf it is, I love the lacy character that results from critter dining.

Finally starting to print the pile of silk I dyed with #madder a couple of weeks ago, this piece with fern and continus from my own organic property. Swipe for additional images. I’m really looking forward to the Deck The Halls artisan market in less than two weeks, but better get a move on as I have so much to do!

Loving these organic textiles created by @raw_color_ using plant dyes. Inspired by their work shown at @abnamronl.

Currently working on my master project and tesis about fiber hemp and it's importance for the textile industry. Discovering more and more about this beautiful fiber and its sustainable qualities!😍 #hemptextile #ecologicaltextiles #stexfibers #hempproject #fiberhemp #sustainability #sustainabletextiles #naturalfibers #lovingnature

When the sun is wearing her beautiful bright and colorful wardrobe and when I'm seeing how she's sending her warm #fibre to the #earth🌎 to gift us all the beautiful and all we need on this planet. And when the clouds turns to a fluffy ecological cotton in a #harvesttime 😍my thoughts #fly✈️ away #greentextilesolutions #fairtradecotton #ecologicaltextiles

Fern and Goldenrod on #Madder dyed silk/wool. I kept this shawl out of my guild’s current fibre festival as I wasn’t happy with the way the borders turned out. But I think it’s going to make a fab top, or cushion cover, or bag, or... #botanicaldye #mylocaldyeplants #dyedwithplants #naturaldye #tintesnaturales #dyedbyhand #slowmade #makersmovement #calledtocreate #foreverbrigit #inspiredbynature #slowmade #madeincapebreton #madeinnovascotia #maritimemakers #ilovecbcraft #organic #ecologicaltextiles #sustainabletextiles

To shine and be bright you need some water and sunshine ☀️ We drink natural and healthy herbs and spices like tumaric and lemongrass. Did you know that tumaric and lemongrass have been used for coloring textile? These herbs and spices give the textile an amazing color and the skin health. Stay shiny and bright 💃🏻💪🏼😃#greentextilesolutions #lovetextile #stayhealthyandfit #stayshiny #bebright #water #dahlien #healthycolor #fairtrade #ecologicaltextiles

On a tightly woven cloth, particularly one with a sheen, you can get the most amazingly crisp prints from Coreopsis. But having not tried it on a looser weave before, I was hoping that a more watercolour-y effect might be possible, and hey presto, that's exactly what happened. I also printed this with Diabolo Ninebark leaves, but very few actually printed, and those that did, did not furnish the dark colours of days of yore.
I'm always fascinated by the colour-giving differences in a plant throughout the year, and from year to year. None of my dark leaf plants have given much colour this year, except for a dark leaf snapdragon. Anyone else observing anything similar?
