Ecoprint samples on their own can often be underwhelming but as a collective their colours and patterns harmonise and sing with resonance. Most of these natural dye/shibori/ecoprints were created using plants from my garden and surrounds. All hand stitched and embroidered onto a handmade apron from the 1960s. Materials include linen, silk, wool and cotton. Many a wise word has been gifted from the wearer of the apron.
