Not long ago I was approached by young fashion designer/ artist SeeManHo for the bespoke natural prints for her eco fashion exhibition. Concept was all natural and back to nature. With another felt maker Magenta who made the wool felt part, designer SeeManHo made a series of eco fashion with my natural printed fabrics. Her design is simply fresh, natural and well fit the theme. Fabrics printed mainly of eucalyptus cinerea and casaurina. Since cotton needs mordant before printing, I have to make soybean mordant thus the process took quite some time to finish.
