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

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.
