Eccomi project with ao textiles
Natural dye in production
I am currently involved with a very exciting sustainable project entitled eccomi (‘here I am' in Italian.)
Working with ao textiles, our project is documented via blog entries on the ao website http://www.aotextiles.com/ao-blog/
After rigorous research we have developed a pioneering naturally dyed silk yarn that works in production. Providing for the first time a naturally dyed fabric suitable for couture produced in the UK.
With this silk taffeta fabric along with our unique and varied blend of design techniques, we aim to produce a dress as a vehicle to explore and challenge the various options for sustainable textile design.
