We stumbled upon a great article that really captures the importance of natural dyeing. The article, written by Juliette Donatelli of Zady, highlights the history of fabric dye with a special emphasis on the harms of synthetic dyeing.
DyeScape, the Lots of Possibility Winner, is already constructing a demonstration garden in the Portland neighborhood of Jefferson County. Its implementation will reinforce Anchal Project’s Didi Connection—a global sisterhood passionate about making a difference for women across continents and seas.
dyeScape can begin to offset the damages of the industrialized textile system by transforming long neglected vacant lots into beautiful productive landscapes, regenerating lasting textiles systems and the communities around the world.
dyeScape? .... Yes, dyeScape, Anchal's newest project! Throughout the week, we at Anchal will be presenting a mini-series on dyeScape. From a look at what the project is to addressing the current textile culture and finally a look at what this project means for the future, in Louisville, other cities & for Anchal's artisans.
