Once off botanical prints on fine fabrics. Artist Kristen McClarty uses a completely natural technique to imprint fynbos and other plants onto silk and hemp linen, using no dye, ink or chemicals and creating no toxic waste. She is effectively making a colourfast stain on the fabric, directly from the tannins and proteins contained in the plant. Kristen's imprinted fabrics are made up into wearable art, including pashmina sized wraps, scarves and bespoke soft furnishings, presented under her inyoni brand.
