it’s a wrap

August 25, 2011




eco dyed damask linen napkin, ho hum!




what happens when it is topped dyed with lac?  Too pink.







using a weak iron modifying bath the colour shifts to a grayed grape. Hum-m, it will do.





the bojagi needed a frame.


the bojagi is a wrapping cloth, in Japan the furoshiki serves a similar purpose.

I stitched a bat knot to one corner, it symbolizes wishes for good luck, health, happiness and prosperity.

    really lovely folded up! it’s interesting to play around with ‘eh’ naturally dyed fibers, there are so many variants you can apply to get something wonderful.

    bojagi made from eco dyed cloth is gorgeous. I have plenty of eco dyed cloth and would love to stitch one of this up (if only I have spare pair of hands hehe!) Lovely it – Hugs Nat

      or bats in your belfry – or in your hair which I once had when living in Singapore. shudder!

    Using the eco-dyed fabrics as trim or in small pieces does seem to make them work better. The bojagi is so lovely.
