Over the past few years, I have experimented with a variety of textile and surfaces for natural dyes. Indigo is my dye of choice, although I often experiment with botanical prints on fabric too. If you are a natural dyer, artist or simply someone looking to explore textiles in a more sustainable way, then I am going to share my favorite blank textiles for natural dyeing.
As you will see, all of my selections for this round-up are either cotton, linen or silk, which are all natural fibers.
Napkins and Paper Products
Tea Towels and Scarves
Tea towels are another awesome way to get started working with indigo and Shibori techniques. They make amazing accessories for your kitchen. If you wish to go larger or create a personal accessory, then I recommend a scarf!
Pocketsquares, T-shirts and Totes
If you are looking for additional items to dye that might make a great gift, then I highly recommend the items listed below. Pocket-squares make the perfect gift for a man, who likes to accessorize. Kid's t-shirts are a great birthday gift or baby shower gift, while tote-bags are reusable and always come in handy.
