Thank you for allowing me to mention this about leaf tannins. Colorway appearance really depends what other tones you pair them with. Yes skill in photographing natural tonal variations plays big emphasis.  Yes I am wearing a mix match but it is all natural which makes the synthetic (unnatural) colorways stand out. Visa Versa  the synthetic black ground and synthetic blue mingle which makes the tannin marks vibrate/stand out color. I solidly cannot explain it I can only relate to you my experience working with and wearing natural tannins coaxed with iron. I will add that natural gem stones /minerals paired with leaf tannins vibrate in unique colorways too.  To be fair the truest color is washed out very pale bluer than green lol siggghhhh.

 Artist Comments: Collectively my body of work exhibits an organic, poetic, artisan made fashion style. Individually, each design reflects a unique combination of materials, construction and natural pigment outcome. My direct approach to eco-refashioning combines two skill sets, first upcycled clothing construction and second printing on natural fibers with leaves. To create a refashion garment I source, piece and stitch together re/deployable post consumer clothing. To print abstract motifs onto a refashion garment surface I gather, layer and bundle immersion process locally gathered wind fallen leaves. Natural leaf tannins have been gently coaxed with iron liquor modifier, heat, pressure and time to render printed motif.

Care Instructions

~each purchase includes copy of instructions, an artisan soap sample with pouch. ~
For garments printed with leaves, the first 2-3 WASHINGS are very important and should be done with as much care as possible. While I have taken extra steps to fix the prints, some of the natural pigment may still wash off during the first 1-2 washings. It is unlikely that any residual natural pigment will stain another garment however it is advisable that you wash your garment by itself during the first 2 washings.

Over exposure to direct sunlight and harsh detergents
will shift natural pigments.
Do not use bleach or enzyme detergents or dry clean.
It is suggested to use artisan soap , mild shampoo or soap nuts

I suggest the Artisan Soap Mini Pouch In the Sink Washing Method:
~each purchase includes an artisan soap sample with pouch. ~
*Use the artisan soap while INSIDE pouch to assure concentrated
cleaning agents do not come in direct contact with fabric surfaces.
*To prepare wash water, wet soap pouch while rubbing between palms to generate suds, swish palms and sudsy pouch in wash water until cloudy. Soap pouch can also be used like a tea bag either steeping in wash water or hanging under running water.
*Fold garment in half and half again
* Immerse folded garment in wash water, continue immersing in and then pulling up out of water with up and down motion. 3 to 5 minutes.
*Drain soap water. Refill sink with clear rinse water.
*Repeat immersion action in Rinse water 3-5 minutes.
*Gently wring out cotton fabrics. silk and wool fabrics blot between two towels. I often run cotton garments through a gentle machine spin cycle then hang to dry
*Hang or lay flat to dry.

If using machine wash, method ~Turn garment inside out. ~
Cold wash on a delicate cycle with shampoo , remove promptly, Hang dry is preferred, iron if desired.
