Japanese silk, hand dyed with plants
Strongly influenced by traditional textiles and techniques that introduced her into the world of natural dyeing, Emi started researching natural dyeing by using flowers, plants and vegetables that she would find around her when she was an art student in London.
She has researched, experimented and developed several different techniques of natural dyeing and created her own colour palettes only using natural dyes. Like mixing paints, she can make colours with her own special recipes. All of her textiles are made using silk yarns which are afterwards dyed with natural dyes from her own recipes.
