Mangosteen dye on cotton

I am so happy with the result on these 2 cotton shirts, dyed with mangosteen skins by fermentation. The colour is so much darker than I have ever achieved with the immersion method by boiling.

What an incredibly rich color! It's beautiful!
I started to 'harvest' some of my elderberries yesterday, trying to beat the birds..... am going to try and do some fermentation dyeing with them soon!
