A Spring Bouquet and Successive Dye Tests

Spring bouquet and a fabric dyeing journal.
Dyed Silk textiles, test samples, acid dye on silk.

Top: a spring bouquet and my analogue fabric dyeing knowledge base packed with last 15yrs of notes on my experiments and know-how passed on mostly from Mr. S at the Tokyo dye material manufacturer, now retired, who never failed to come up with solutions and workarounds, always from the place of “yes you can”, which was especially helpful when I was ready to quit after a total mess-up in 2003.
Bottom: dye experiments, stored in my paulownia wood treasure chest.
