Blanche #3 Blush _ Natural Dye
Blanche #3 is a Naturally dyed, braided rug, woven by hand on a traditional foot-loom from 100% hand-spun sheep’s wool. Having washed, mordanted, and soaked the wool overnight, we extracted the pigments from natural ingredients including cochineal, and experimented with dye baths to create a variety of vivid pinks. The Power of Cochineal, an insect native to Latin America and used in Indigenous communities for centuries as a dye for textiles and body paint, we worked with cochineal, soaking the wool in the dye baths for different periods of time, achieving striking shades of pinks.
All of our rugs are designed by Hanne de Wyngaert (Belgium) and then spun, dyed, and handwoven by Mayan weavers in Guatemala. We strive to provide economic opportunity and celebrate indigenous traditions to create beautiful and functional products.
