Eco printed T-shirt

This is my first cotton T-shirt  that I eco printed and like a lot. All the others are not so great. I used bottle brush, the red one, eucalyptus leaves and onion skins. It is also the first one that I try that isn't my size. Oh well, I will make it fit. I have some recycled cotton sheet fabric that is dyed in the same bath, I might combine both of them into a dress. The first image is the back and the second is the front. 
The T-shirt was mordanted in soy milk and egg.

Time for change

When I read the following article, I think we need to really decide on what is the most important thing right now. Do we want to save mother earth and make it a better place to live?


This motivates me even more to keep looking for more safer alternatives. I have already chosen to use organic wool, natural dyes, fair trade silk and organic cottons, with the use of second hand natural fibres. My next step is to grow my own dye plants, including indigo or woad and I also want to explore more of the natives for their colour potential.
