Business: Fancy Dyed Stuff
From: Lincoln, NE
Originally from Omaha, NE, I now live in Lincoln, NE via Eugene, OR. I have been working with textiles my whole life. I started working with dyes and the batik technique over 30 years ago while earning a degree in Textiles at UNL. Since then, I've worked in natural resources, but I began to dye and sell fabrics and clothing in 2010.
I dye and paint on natural fiber fabrics and clothing, silk scarves and bamboo socks; cotton, rayon, wool, and silk clothes and accessories for all ages and sizes, from babies to adults and even for dogs! I use professional dyes that are light and colorfast in dye baths and using the shibori technique, applying dyes in multiple layers. I enhance the patterns and colors by directly applying thickened dyes on top of my dyed pieces to create unique patterns. My pieces are art to wear!
