Botanical Dyeing Wedding Service
HOW IT WORKS
We use a natural dyeing process called Bundle dyeing. It works through using steam and non - toxic mordants to transform the clients bridal bouquets into beautiful floral prints.
The process will take one month to 6 weeks from the delivery
of the flowers and the confirmation of the purchase order. We will need approximately three of the wedding arrangements for the process, depend-ing on the garment chosen. After the wedding, they can be sent in airtight containers (I.e., ziplock bags, ball jars), and we would prefer them dried.
We can derive color from most flowers/greens, including white. Please note, however, that colors do NOT come out in this process as the same color as the flower. Because of our rust based mordant the palette typically consists of blues, grays, greens and purple tones. Sometimes eucalyptus will turn red.
