Eloise Botanical Dyeing Process Sydney Australia

From Plant to Print: Our Botanical Dyeing Process.

Each and every Botanical print palette is an exclusive artwork created by our founder Eloïse using her unique botanical dyeing process. Eloïse uses a natural dyeing process that extracts colour and pattern from various Australian botanicals. This beautiful process is called botanical dyeing. The plants are wrapped in silk creating a silk bundle and then steamed for a duration of time. During this time, the botanicals infuse with the silk, revealing the most exquisite natural colours, patterns and textures into the silk fibre. This process is completely unpredictable, which makes every botanical silk artwork and palette unique, special and one of a kind.

From these gorgeous silk swatches, Eloïse then creates a digital repeat pattern design for the purpose of direct to fabric digital printing. The silk fabric is digitally printed in Sydney Australia, using the finest natural textiles and non-toxic, water miscible dyes that are environmentally friendly.

The result is an exceptional final product that captures all of the stunning intricate botanical details, textures and colours of Eloïse’s artworks. The silk is then transformed into your favourite handmade products in our Sydney atelier by Eloïse and her incredible team, creating one of a kind silk hair accessories and clothing.
