Read full project description Close project description

Amsterdam-based designer Lucila Kenny works with plants, flowers, fruits and herbs to create natural dyes for textiles. Originating from Argentina, her interest in fabrics and textiles brought her to Amsterdam via Ghana where she was influenced by its traditional Batik dyes. In her Amsterdam studio she holds regular workshops in which she teaches participants how to develop and apply dyes in a careful process of grinding, soaking and heating different fibres. Since 2014 she has also been producing her own line of hand-dyed scarves.
