Japanese Textile Dye Kit - A set

48.00

This kit is a perfect gift for a person who loves handcraft, natural products or sustainable idea.

Bengala is a mud dye for textiles. Made of sustainable material mined from soil, Bengala is eco-friendly and safe for people, and was once used as an insect repellent and sunscreen for houses and clothing in Japan.
This new eco-dye product lets us experience how we have been connecting with Mother Earth since ancient times, while allowing us to save resources through green living from now on. 

With a pair of wooden sticks for color resisting, you can create original patterns on fabric.
First, follow the instructions to pre-fix the fabric. Then fold cloth into pleats. Make square shape or triangle shape for basic. Then sandwich it with two wooden sticks.  Both ends of stick should be sticked out of the folded fabric. After bundling both ends of the wood firmly with a rubber band, dye it as you like! Try different ways of pleats and positions of the wooden sticks.  You may use some C-clamps or spring clamps instead of rubber bands.
Enjoy Bengala dye!
