Sustainable fabric scarves (bamboo, banana, soya, cotton and silk)

Lockdown, though maybe not my most creative time, was an opportunity to research the sustainablilty of fabrics. Having identified several environmentally friendly fibres, I managed to source a few and set about experimenting with them. Walks in my locality also found some natural dye plants. Armed with this new information and feeling refreshed as (some) freedoms returned, I now felt able explore dyeing/ screen printing onto soya bean, banana and bamboo fibres as well as organic cotton in ways which cause less damage to our planet.

Study of artefacts in Abingdon Museum (for an exhibition there in 2020 - delayed to this year) sparked an interest in traditional embroidery, but with a modern twist.
