Of traditional colouring techniques and all-new impressions.

My sweeties, we are always learning something new every day and this past Saturday, it was one of those days when I learned exceptionally many new things. I learned that there are beautiful houses in my hometown Hanover where people turn homes into truly creative work- and living-spaces and I also learned so many new things about dyeing fabric with Indigo colour and the traditional Japanese fabric-folding technique Shibori.

Thanks to an invitation by Etsy*, I and some lovely blogging-colleagues from the blogs The Adorable Two, Luzia Pimpinella and Sanzibell, were invited into Petra Hassan’s perfectly Moroccan-inspired work- and living-space in Hanover. In a small group, Petra, whose Etsy-Shop Ranipink* you should definitely visit (she’s dyeing so many lovely things!), told us everything about Indigo-colour and its history and origins. Afterwards, we all started working on our own pieces and started folding in variations of the Shibori-technique before dyeing our own pieces with Indigo colour.

Petra explained everything so clearly that I really feel like I could start dyeing my own clothes at home now. And I really loved how all our pieces turned out – so individual and beautiful! Shibori is a wonderful technique to create these unique pieces of fabric!

I’ve also brought along some photographed impressions from our workshop day and perhaps, one or the other of you has also watched my Instagram Stories, where I’ve taken you along throughout the day! How do you like our results? Pretty cool, huh?

    Was für ein toller Bericht und die Sachen sehen so toll aus! Bin eh ein totaler Blau-Fan und das Indigo-Fäbren klingt so spanend! <3
