This Tekhni Olympos Chai has been dyed solid eggplant. This is a good example of a silk/cotton blend wrap that has been solid dyed with procion dyes. Using procion dyes with a silk/cotton blend wrap dyes both the cotton and the silk. The cotton dyes the true color of the selected dye, and the silk dyes similarly- sometimes the same as the cotton, sometimes slightly differently. Here the silk didn’t dye as deeply as the cotton, which really helps the Olympos pattern pop.
This is a custom-dyed wrap; the customer provides the wrap of their choice and we work together to create a vision for a one-of-a-kind dyed project. If you are interested in learning more about having your wrap custom dyed, please check out my Custom Color page, the FAQ, or contact me.
