Eco prints – 2 kinds of eucalyptus leaves

 
I background dyed this thrifted cashmere scarf first in some used dye, then layered it with leaves and wrapped and tied it around an iron spring. Steamed for 2 hours and unwrapped the next day.

I love dressing up the mannequins!

 Eco dyed goodness on display at Gone Rustic yesterday. Closed for a few days now, but you can still shop online at www.gonerustic.com.

Bronze Age design

 
Recently @gonerustic I shared about a handbound book I made, which included an eco printed paper with added bronze stencilling. This has now also become the inspiration for a new fashion range called ‘bronze age’, available at http://shopvida.com/collections/voices/rita-summers

Collaboration video

Here is a short video of the collections I’ve designed so far in collaboration with ethical fashion company ShopVida, based on 4 of my eco prints on paper. Made to order, the designs featured here are: ‘ghosts of autumn’, ‘forest floor’, ‘urban chic’ and ‘lost and found’.
