Lessons of Natural Dyeing

Dyes from the wild Nordic nature

Nordic summer has its advances. Having long days and short nights during the summer, we have plenty of time to do all kind of creative experiments. I tried natural dyeing last summer and I totally got excited of it.

I focused on the sources of dyes that can grow wild or are suitable for cultivation in Finland, such as hays, mushrooms and leaves of the trees. The idea of natural dyeing is not to use fields that can be used food cultivation, but the fields where is necessary to grow certain plants that are important for the diversity of nature.  

Studying natural dyeing was very inspiring. The lessons learnt form the studies were that natural dyes, traditionally connected to small-scale of craftsmanship, can now be used in industrial-scale production.

Part of the Finnish lamb wool yarn in Bonden Spring 2018 Betula collection is natural dyed by the professional natural dyeing artisans in Finland.
