You are at the beginning of your natural dyeing journey and you want to create natural colors from foods such as carrots, beetroot and red cabbage... in an eco friendly and natural way 🌻
But why does it feel so complicated?
If you are like most of my students before they start working with me, then you probably feel FRUSTRATED AND A BIT CONFUSED... there seems to be so many different materials, factors and processes that sometimes you are tired before you even start...
Are you finding yourself...
Doing long messy processes that somehow don’t work as they should
Wondering why your food dyed fabrics and yarns fade away after a few washes
Not knowing the amounts of dye and mordant needed to dye a specific amount of fiber
Asking yourself which fabrics or yarns will work with natural dyes
Getting confused about what natural dyeing techniques to use
Not knowing what steps are needed in natural dyeing and what steps are optional?
I can help you
Because I was you 🌻🌻
Hi, I am Victoria Martinez Azaro, AKA, La Creative Mama, natural dyer, eco printer, creative sewer and fashion sustainability educator 🙂.
I love teaching and passing on knowledge that I have accumulated over the years through trial and error... and let me tell you, there were a lot of errors😞
My natural dyeing practice started with lots of failed attempts and many “meh” not impressive results (lots of beige and browns that would wash away after the second wash).
I found myself trying to understand chemical reactions, fiber compositions, the difference between acid dyes and natural dyes, mordants… it was all too confusing for me.
I got frustrated many times after trying long processes only to get very pale and unsatisfying color results.
The good news is that after so many failed attempts, I discovered a simple formula:
Specific dyes + specific process = BEAUTIFUL BRIGHT & LASTING COLOR
and that's how I developed...
La Creative Mama Natural Dyeing Method
This is my foolproof method – developed over 12 years- it works every time… and it works wonders when you dye silks and wools using food dyes ...
but not all food dyes create colorfast and durable natural color, that's why you need to choose your dyes carefully.
Using food dyes is the easiest way to start your natural dyeing journey because they are super affordable and easy to access, and the best food dyes available to us are:
