These prints were made from fresh leaves and petals. This technique translates from Japanese as hammer dyeing. Simply put it is the transfer of plant pigment directly on fabric by use of hammer. たたき染め

I have composed these cottons to be made into something special. After they have been hammered I fix them with various mordants such as iron to bring out bold colors and keep the pigment in.

These pieces are : F- organic cotton poplin, sumac print. 7.5x7.5 inches G- organic sueded cotton, sumac print on previously dyed textile. 5x9 inches H- organic cotton poplin, sumac and coreopsis print overdyed with indigo. 4x10 inches I- organic sueded cotton, sumac print overdyed with indigo. 10x10 inches J- organic cotton poplin, sumac print, 10x11 inches I recommend hand wash in mild soap and air dry.
