Working with a Partner

I have always said that collaboration makes for a more interesting result. Another person in the conversation brings up the’ we could try ‘… and the ‘what ifs?’…  So a quick look into the latest collaboration with ten year old grandson Loic Daily the better half of Daily Hand Dyed Textiles.

Decisions to Make

We were getting him ready for a makers fair at his school. It is a fundraiser for the PTA and he gets to showcase his creativity. I get to join him as the ‘adult’!!! His little brother added some tie dyed t-shirts and I had wares made from my own hand dyed fabrics.

Loic decided on sets of napkins and tea towels. He also was working on a series of scarves.

Ice dyeing some napkins.
It’s melting!

The reveal

There is nothing better when dyeing fabric then the reveal. Sometimes we are underwhelmed, but mostly we are delighted. Loic’s shibori napkins has lead us to do more. The most popular color seems to be in the blue range. we sold out the dark blues. But everyone we sold to was delighted by the colors Loic choose. He was the master, I was his trusty helper.
