Developing my garden Dyeing List!
When Season changes, the leaves of this grapes variety turn its color into the deep purple to black shades While most of the red grapes varieties would change its color into light pink shade.
It can very well be the effect of the soil composition in fact.
This purple leaves had always been looking so delicious to me, though I could not find an appropriate employment for these, until I realised I gotta try them in the natural contact printing!
Well, the results were even better then I’d expected.
The only thing is that there is never actually lots of purple leaves, black leaves are even rarer. If you missed the right time, you can easily get to your vinery and they all will be gone already.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with vine’s schedule!
This year I had stored just a few leaves, which later were shared with a friend. I am in anticipation of her comments, hope she’ll like them as much as I do.
I do hope that coming season will bring back this wonderful palette in lots of leaves and I won’t miss the opportunity to pick them all!
Or as much!
