Dyeing textiles with pigments from nature is one of the oldest fabric colouring techniques. However, not everyone has the space and time to do this at home. Leaf or flower pounding is another way to get the natural pigments into the fabric.

You can create beautiful home textiles, or even decorate T-shirts or tote bags. It is a great way to add colour to older textiles, or to reuse an item that has been stained beyond repair.
