Coloured by Nature
Eco Dyed Scarfs and Accesories
With my background in floristry it is not surprising that I fell in love with Eco Dying.
The gathering of materials and wrapping of the bundles is fun but not as much fun as un-wrapping them and discovering what nature has produced for me. It is a wonderful journey of exploration, nothing ever turns out the same twice!
I was born in the Netherlands and studied floristry there. After owning my own shop for 4 years I found it time to work elsewhere to stay fresh. I met my now husband in Holland and took a chance to come to Australia. I fell in love with the country immediately and never looked back. The unique plant materials that first inspired me in my florist work are now inspiring me in my eco dyeing to make beautiful scarves on 100% silk. Other materials I like to use are natural fibres such as Linen, Cotton and Wool and I try try to create unique yet useful items.
We are based in the beautiful Blue Mountains, and my creations that have been ‘Coloured by Nature’ can be found at the Everglades Historic House and Garden Gift Shop.
