Solar dye

When i cook, i usually will be stirring in my dye pans too. These days i have been doing a lot of dyeing and experimenting. I'm trying different plants, mordants and techniques. This is a solar dye technique that i've done with avocado stones and it's the first time. I dont think it will work with every kind of plant, as some dye's do need be treated with a higher temperature. Avocado dye is a perfect dye for a beginner too because it gives colour easily and the colour is long lasting.

Feel free to ask me any dye questions. I'm a beginner too but i love to share my experiences. I have been getting lots of questions on instagram already and it's good to see that there's a natural dye movement going on.


  1. Wat een mooi resultaat. Wat voor soort stof gebruik je over het algemeen?

    1. Dankjewel Alet. Ik gebruik eigenlijk alleen ongebleekte katoen en ik gebruik ook graag kaasdoek zoals afgebeeld boven. Groetjes

  2. Wat ziet het er allemaal prachtig uit Afke!
