J R Creative Designs

Over the past six years, I have immersed myself in the process of natural dyeing.  I have expanded from small bits of silk into a small business selling naturally-dyed up-cycled clothing, also my own clothing designs, made and naturally-dyed.  I am now exploring the possibility of running classes to teach people how to begin their own journey with natural- dyeing and any other ideas!

I am amazed at the beauty of colours available from nature with a bit of alchemy and patience. Each piece is individually created, coloured from nature, woven with thoughts, handled with care and unique in its moment.

My connection is the beauty of capturing a moment in time on fabric; a feeling, a smell, a sound, an intention… Therefore that moment of gathering the leaves or dye day is so poignant for me and the ability to pass that on to who ever will become the new owner. Hence each piece is accompanied with a poem describing its gathering or creation day.
