21 Apr Eco printing on cellulose fabric
There’s a beautiful Asian feel to this linen table runner that Liga printed at Clasheen as part of Nurture during August 2021. Eco printing without traditional powdered mordants is a fascinating process, some plants print beautifully and are totally wash fast while others give absolutely no substantive colour at all and fade almost immediately. Liga and I both absolutely loved her end result!
