2 double hand-embroidered linen placemats dye by Hellenius Botanicals
The One-of-a-kind category features unique, collaborative and experimental pieces.
For this special collaboration with Hellenius Botanicals, the sumac was used for the dye process, in combination with iron to produce grey with a slightly periwinkle undertone. Eucalyptus and delphinium were also used on these unique placemats. Because of the seasonal and local nature of the plants used, Hellenius Botanicals thinks of these fabrics as tactile poetry that evoke a particular moment and place.

Care of embroidered linen.
No dry clean
Gently wash by hand using black soap to remove any stubborn stains before washing your embroidered linen in the washing machine. Do not use bleach as it will damage the fabric and the dye.
Before putting your linen in the washing machine, carefully to place it in a special bag for delicate linen so that the embroidery threads are not damaged by rubbing. Then wash in the washing machine at 40°c, cold, on the gentle program. Do not spin too hard to avoid damaging the embroidery.
Once your embroidery has been washed, lay it out flat to avoid distorting it, away from any source of heat and in the shade if you are hanging it outside.
A little tip: don’t let the laundry dry completely, it will be easier to iron.
Iron your embroidered linen while it is still wet, using a hot iron and full steam. You can also place a terry towel under the linen to avoid flattening the embroidery stitches and to give the work more emboss effect.
