Our new Heirloom Kits are made to inspire you to create a beautiful gift for someone special, or to honour a special event such as a baby shower, a wedding or a harvest from grandma's garden.
The Heirloom Cotton Khadi Scarf / Sarong Kit contains everything you will need to create your piece, using our non-toxic, all natural & organic textiles, dyes and mordants to prepare the cloth to accept colour, and to make the colour last. Colours can also be transferred from fresh picked flowers and leaves.
This Cotton Khadi Scarf works equally well as a Sarong or Wrap as it's an extra large 240cm long x 110cm wide.
A perfect activity for all ages, Our 100% hand-loomed Khadi Scarf can be dyed all the one colour, tie dyed, dip dyed to create a balayage effect, or coloured with the pigment from foraged botanicals. How lovely to be able to take colour from a wedding bouquet, or blooms & leaves picked on a special holiday, and 'print' their colour onto a textile momento.

*The process for achieving blue colour from Indigo Dye is completely different from the process used for all of the above dye colours. For this reason we have not offered Indigo as an option for this kit. If you would like to use Indigo for your project, consider ordering one of our Indigo Dye Kits along with this Heirloom Kit, or with a single item from our Dyeables Collection.
