Lately I’ve been working on a new project. I am revamping my line of textile and accessory design to be, among other things, a friend of the environment. It’s a total overhaul and quite an exhausting process, to be completely honest. But I think it’s well worth the effort. Some of what I’m doing includes working with textile designers who use all natural fibers, buying organic cottons and recycled or naturally tanned leather, and having my fabrics dyed using natural dyestuff. This last point brings me to the reason that I am writing this blog post: Noon Design Studio, a small natural dye house in Chicago, run by Jane Palmer. I was so excited to come across this one woman show. Noon uses everything from walnuts to madder to pomegranate to create a beautiful array of colors on all sorts of natural fibers. Upon discovering this company, I received a gorgeous color card highlighting the long list of hues that are available and cannot wait to start working with Jane, as I believe I am going to be truly thrilled with the results! But don’t take my word for it. Check out this Project Page to See Jane Dye Stuff!
