Hand-dyed Sarong

This sarong was made under some of the main principals of the art of dying: that a dyed piece can always be recovered, and that layers are the key to success. While making my sarong, I chose a color palette of yellows, reds and greens and used these same colors to create a complex repeating motif.  This process used 6 different dying techniques and required many layers. Although during the beginning of the design process the sarong did not look like much, the additional layers and precisely placed linear motif ultimately led to its success.
