This rescued linen was first hand-stitch for hours, pulled tightly and dyed in all natural indigo. Then wax was hand painted on the fabric after a wash and dry. Then the piece was hand dyed with gold yellow reactive dye using a low immersion method using the least amount of water. Then special wash for wax removal and a thorough washing and fix bath. Finally it was blockprinted by with hand-carved stamp blocks of stern elephants and dots crosses, all original artwork.

Ink is heat set textile ink and therefore washable. Cold water gentle cycle or hand wash, with line dry suggested. Iron will be needed, but the linen is on the soft side.
