The raw silk is fastened over a frame.
The silk is soaked with a water alcohol mixture.
We then apply the special high quality silk dyes after carefully choosing the colors.
After the colors dry, the silk is removed from the frame, the now dyed silk is rolled up in recycled paper. This starts the fixation of the dyes to the fabric.
After a few days the material is rinsed from excess dye.
Then it is ready to be cut and sewn!
