Eco Print is a complex magical meeting of silk, leave, flowers, metals, natural dyes, and heat to create gorgeous detailed prints of leaves on the fabric. Silk pieces are printed using actual leaves, collected fresh and used only once. Leaves are laid on the fabric which is then rolled around a rusty metal rod and steamed. The heat releases the natural tannins and pigments onto the fabric. Background colors are derived from natural dyes made from roots, barks, berries, and husks. When combined with different mordants such as iron and copper, an endless array of color possibilities are created. Each one is a unique and no two pieces are alike.
Shanna Rose is passionate about creating wearable art from the varied forests of Southern Oregon. It is truly “local” art!
