Eco Print or Botanical Printing is a natural and sustainable dyeing technique that uses heat and contact to transfer the different components and pigments from plants to the fabric.
The art of botanical printing is based on natural elements such as leaves, flowers, seeds and roots, which make it possible to create complex, fully organic and long-lasting patterns on the fabric, creating unique pieces impossible to repeat.
The potential plants used as raw material can be found easily anywhere, there is a multitude of varieties available in nature, just knowing how to collect and use them correctly.
