Beautiful vintage piece of mid century hand crocheted trim lace, naturally dyed to a soft, clear spring green. Strong cotton, excellent work.

Length: 17 inches
Width: 4 inches to each point

Upcycling Vintage Lace is a wonderful way to preserve the talent of the past and dyeing it beautifully in natural herb dye baths adds another creative unique dimension. We never use commercial prepared dyes or commercially prepared extracts.

This piece was throughly laundered in distilled water and soapwort before we hand dyed it in our herb dye baths. The final rinse was in distilled water. This the best way to preserve the work without risking iron spots in the years to come. Do not use bleach, wash in cool water with gentle soap to clean. Wring gently, never twist the piece, roll in dry towel then lay and shape, air dry.

Nice work, click the ZOOM for a great close up.
