a little bit about g. roslie’s dyeing process:

starting with the highest quality eco-friendly fabric, all hand dyed goods (with the exception of indigo) are first dipped in organic soy milk that I extract starting from the beans. i prefer to use soy milk in lieu of alum mordanting due to the environmental factors of using metallic salts & the tremendous amount of water usage that is required with the traditional alum method. although a bit more time consuming, i have found that using the ancient japanese method of curing the fabric in soy milk affords me similar results to mordanting with a much lighter footprint on our precious environment thus making the dyeing process ’super natural'. once the textile good is dipped, it is line dried & put away to ‘cure' for up to 2 weeks. after curing, i then dye the goods using all natural botanical & earth pigments & after a quick rinse, i allow the textile to cure again for an additional 2 weeks prior to hand washing with a gentle neutral ph detergent & line drying.
