EARTH PALETTE #1

(sorry if you've already read this post on my regular blog, but I cut & pasted over here)

exciting morning for me, girls ! Please let me share with you my very first zine

EARTH PALETTE (#1)

EARTH PALETTE zine - issue 1

EARTH PALETTE is a 26 pages, full color, collection of photos of (some of the) dyeing experiments (hot & solar) I have made between November 2009 & August 2010.

I have illustrated the pages with drawings of the part of the plant I have used for dyeing.

it does NOT contain any instruction about how to dye with plants. It must be considered as a record book of my own experiments, something that may inspire you to start your own experiments, or simply something to enjoy for its simple beauty.

there is a small envelope in the last page containing a little extra ...

it will be wrapped with a green twine & a handmade gift tag (illustrated by me, and that you may reuse)

it has been printed in a limited edition of 25 copies. I will consider making a second batch only if they all sell out.


thank you so much for bearing all my zine talking these past weeks. I will do my best to make a new Earth Palette zine each year, and if I end making many experiments, maybe more often. Thank you for your kindness, everyone, you have been amazingly supportive ! It really means the world to me !

  1. What you do is amazing... I hope the day arrives when all of us value more all the things we have the luck to wear and to own, and every human activity integrates sweetly into the cycles of nature. Thank you very much!
