These plant dyed vegan project bags were developed by knitters themselves
It’s humbling, funny and amazing at the same time that my best products where developed by you 💛 these bags started as XL toiletry bags but from the very beginning were only bought by knitters. After you asked, I made drawstring version too and these are some of my most successful males at the moment.
When I first started my adventure with dyeing, I just wanted to play with plants and made some products to support my hobby. I didn’t know what would sell and what you would like. It’s so interesting to look back at how it all started and see where I’m at right now.
I always admire makers who just start with one product or a line of products and give it all their energy, sticking to it for months or even years. I’m so much more about the process and I get distracted with new ideas all the time. I’m doing my best to put more energy into marketing and I’m grateful for you showing me what products are worth the effort. It’s just the beginning of December but I already know that 2019 will be a year of more focused business approach. And I’ll try to enjoy it 😉
So this one was made with organic cotton dyed with soy milk and madder. Lined with raw linen for EU. The zipper is metal + cotton instead of polyester, the pull is linen as well. Stamped by hands with water based acrylic paint. The yarns in the photo were dyed with local plants too, so were the cotton scraps. Plant dyes make rainbow of colors so now you can see how difficult it can be to focus on the business side of thing when there’s so many colors to discover 😊
