Description

I bought some white cotton crepe on clearance from a local fabric shop and decided to try my hand at natural dyeing. I dyed this particular piece using turmeric powder. As I was unsure about the colorfastness of the natural dye, I made a scarf out of so that it won’t have to be washed too often.

100% cotton crepe
