Naturally Dyed Swaddle Blankets
Chrysteen Borja has designed a materials kit focusing on the dyeing principles taught in her full workshop to create a custom set of swaddle blankets. Natural fabrics dye beautifully and the 100% organic cotton swaddle blankets featured in this kit will inspire. The natural dye materials we’re exploring: quebracho rojo (red), wattle (mauve), logwood (purple), Himalayan rhubarb (yellow).
