Bosco, scatto creativo.

 

 

It is in nature that everything begins, with the phase of collecting the leaves and plant elements.

 

The process takes place in several stages. After being washed, the fabric must be mordent, this allows the cuticles of the fibers to open and the color to take root. The actual dyeing can occur in different ways. After cooking, the canvas is opened and the prints are revealed: the result is always a surprise
