Bali #3

by Markita Hall-Gumble

To recap, in July 2023 I visited Bali Indonesia for textiles.  This post is about a side trip organized as part of the Wacky Jacky Bali class.  At CV. Tarum Bali, they dye yarns with organic material.  An example is mengkudu (also known as Indian Mulberry) the resulting color is a rusty red.   We used a dye vat made of mango leaves resulting in a yellow color, again we used our skills in shibori resist and binding the fabric.  

Attached is a video and pictures of the factory and our projects.
