With our unusual colour concept in mind Penny carried out extensive colour testing using many different plant based dyes. She always looks carefully at the mordants and assistants needed in her techniques to ensure the outcomes are as sustainable as possible. 

At ao we are continually amazed at the depth and richness of achievable colour. The tones of the shades have a unique quality that is very tricky to replicate using any other method.

As always lots of thought, changing our minds, visualising and experimenting ensued.

One of the concepts we visualised working.
