Spring Peach Brief
The Spring Peach Brief is dyed with madder, henna, and tara + iron salts.
Madder is one of the oldest known dye materials. They must grow underground for 3 years before they can be harvested for color.
Often used to dye skin and hair, Henna comes from the leaves of a shrub and are high in tannin, making the dye particularly colorfast.
Tara comes from the pod of a leguminous Peruvian tree of the same name. I then wash the dyed fabric in iron salts to alter the pH and push the dye to the beautiful purple-gray color you see in the band.
