A collection of textiles dyed with foraged plants from Walthamstow and Hackney Marshes by stylist Grace Joel 2020

“While the plant dyes aren’t as colourfast as synthetics, they gradually change over time and need good love and care, their ephemeral nature is what makes them living and special. I like the idea that a piece really marks a moment in time – the berries sprouting out of a bomb site that destroyed so many homes and lives in the past, picked in a global pandemic, dyed with rainwater collected from these skies that were clear for just a short moment.” Grace Joel speaking to Also Journal
