Abstract

My design scholarship explores applications of natural dyes on textiles. This particular garment is the result of experimenting with sunflower (Helianthus maximilianii) and an iron modifier. Sunflower heads typically yield an acidic yellow-green color when extracted as a dye; however, the addition of iron to the dye bath 'saddens' or grays the color toward a muted green.
