What you'll do

You can either bring your own fabric (up to t-shirt size in cotton, linen and rayon only) to dye or buy napkin size cotton fabric, t-shirts or scarves from me (depending on its availability). The used fabric is good (let's give a new look to old pre-loved piece!) but if you are bringing new fabric, please make sure you wash it well (ideally in hot water) to remove any starch/production residuals before coming to the class. After you tie fabric, you will repeat "dye and oxidize" process until you are happy with the depth of blue shade you get. This class will take 2 - 2.5hours. You can bring your dyed piece home with you at the end of the class (they are still wet but you can dry it at home). I will explain how to wash it at home and about care instruction of indigo dyed pieces. Please see my instagram page @jalakbali_byrumi first to get some ideas on what you can create!

Rumi

My name is Rumi living in Bali since 2011. I started to design for my own clothing/homeware label and then started to dye fabric in natural indigo as I fell in love with this colour from the plant and the way of making this dyestuff. I use locally sourced natural ingredients to make my indigo vat. I teach how to shibori (tie) and dye fabric in my indigo dyestuff. This is a great way of giving new look to your old beloved pieces as well as making something new by hand dyeing. Yes you are going to be upcycling, reusing and loving again your beloved pieces even more!
