naturally dyed napery from earth colour

By

Jazzing up the dinner table is as simple as throwing down some nice napery. A table runner here, some placemats there and voila! Whatever your serve up is guaranteed to look five times more impressive. If you dig the rustic look, direct your peepers to Earth Colour, a Melbourne business run by Alicia Aulsebrook. Keeping things earth-friendly is top of mind for Alicia – she opts for hemp and organic cotton fabric and dyes each piece using natural matter. Bark, flowers and even discarded wood shavings (picked up from local furniture makers) all impart pretty hues on the final cloth. How cool is that?
