Raw Textiles

'Edwin Pelser' a design shop in Den Haag, features a few times per year a designer, displaying the work and selling the products. We were asked by Edwin to showcase the Raw Color project. One of our aims was to develop a 'product' that could be sold in his shop, and similarly adds a new chapter to our research on vegetable pigments. For the exhibition we developed 'Raw Textiles', a series of hand dyed silk scarves, that derived from the vegetable pigments. Based on the ongoing research this was actually the first time that we examined the application of the dyes on textile. We deepened ourselves in the old techniques of dyeing textile with natural pigments and their possibilities. After dyeing the silk for several days it resulted in 18 unique shades that were created by pure and mixed vegetable dyes. We presented them as a big gradient in the window display. For those who are interested, they are for sale!
