Presenting a limited Edition run of her naturally dyed Indigo fabric. Each mask is one of a kind, hand dyed by Frances.
Indigo dye has been around for over a 1000 years and is one of the original blues in fabric dyes. It is a magical process whereby the blue colour adheres to the fabric thru a fermentation process of the Indigo plant and the introduction of base elements including AIR (oxygen). Used in combination with Shibori, a type of Japanese surface design, the indigo effect is always soothing, mystical and evocative of the sea.
Frances has been doing surface design since 2003 thru her company Frances Felt. Indigo became a passion around 2018 and has been her main focus in her garment and scarf designs since then. She also teaches Indigo workshops in her home based studio.
$1 from each mask will be donated to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada (BCSC). Breast cancer affects all Canadians in so many ways. We want to support the research and tireless efforts of this hardworking society who are dramatically reducing the effects of breast cancer in Canadian women.
