Another eco dye piece

This piece was cotton mordanted and dyed with turmeric. I used celery leaves and fresh rose leaves in the bundle. The purplish circles are from floss flowers. There were quite a few more of these but I don't think they were all flower side down on the fabric so not all gave out there colour. Again I think I overdid the rion blanket but it was done at the same time as the previous series so the learning of using very little iron with tannin mordanted cotton had not been fully absorbed
