The process of natural dyeing is 1 part alchemy + 2 parts magic.  There is the scientific side of extracting botanical color utilizing age old recipes, color tests, ph balance, and mordanting.  Then there is the universal magic of nature that defies every measurement, rule and preparation.  The most exciting part of the process is what you learn and create through sheer happenstance.  Each piece created for Traveling Miles Studio is a labor of love as the process is labor intensive and not exacting.  No two pieces are alike and we wouldn't have it any other way.
