Eco printing with ferns and gum leaves

 
A cotton/spandex top that I eco dyed last week (slow cooked in a crockpot of banksia leaves + alum with spring water; bracken fern and eucalyptus leaves between the layers). I will be listing this cute little top for sale soon in my online shop

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’.

From basic to beautiful

Even ordinary cotton tshirts and tank tops can become something rather special when they go through the eco printing/dyeing process! Available for purchase here.
