    Beautiful colors!
    I know you use all natural dyes but how do you get such vivid pinks and purples from nature?

  3. Cochineal, cochineal overdyed with indigo, and logwood purple are responsible. I do think the bamboo is a perfect fiber to absorb the dyes so the coloring is brilliant! The scarf on the right also has some logwood grey that became a stunning silvery grey.
