MY ECO PRINTED PRODUCTS The collections place the principle of classical feminine values and sustainability into the center of focus and follow personal intuitions. The main inspiration during the designing process was the atmosphere of my dye garden and outdoor studio. Then I built upon these keywords: organic, clearcut, herbal, decorative, sophisticated… The items also represents the possibilities of chemical free dying methods. I like combining traditional and modern techniques, like traditional natural dying in a modern way. My main goals are not only the care and respect for nature, but the respect for classical and artistic values too. These pieces are all unique, telling stories… Designed in Budapest, Hungary Handcrafted in Szigetszentmiklós (Pest county), Hungary By purchasing a Dittafelt product you support local designers, the movement of sustainable design and you help maintain ancient crafts.
THE PROCESS As for the materials, they are premium, luxury textiles or GOTS-certified textiles which are dyed with plants or print with plants using the eco print technique for making the pattern. Textiles were bundle-dyed with a variety of natural dye extracts and raw natural dye materials (like flowers, leaves, wood chips etc.) to produce the various colors and patterns. Then the bundle is steamed or boiled to release the dye found naturally inside the plant, creating a contact print in the shape of the leaf or flower used. For the process I use home grown plants- based on natural resources. In this way, all items are unique. Because it is hand made, the natural imperfections are a part of its beauty.
