Eco Print Botanical Cushions by Heirloom Fibrecraft


What a lovely surprise to find Kim from Heirloom Fibrecraft

She creates eco botanical prints on fabrics, cushions and fashion accessories from local plants and flowers using natural dyeing techniques.

Her technique includes collecting leaves, wrapping them in a bundle of natural cloth with metals and mordants and heating the bundles with hot water or steam. This process creates a chemical reaction that creates the random natural shapes and colours you can see in her work.
How cool would it be to take your wedding day bouquet flowers and turn them into an original cushion print! What a great way to remember the day?

These are all for sale at Kim's Etsy store Natural Base and her site is Heirloom Fibrecraft
Have fun,
