Featured Artist : Jane DeGroff | Spring City Hand-Dyed

Artist Bio / Statement

My name is Jane DeGroff and I am the designer/dyer at Spring City Hand-Dyed.  I dye textiles, mostly silk scarves, in natural dyes using Shibori techniques.  

I have been dyeing for several years, but started doing shibori in natural dyes about a year ago.  I love shibori!  The variety is endless and the results are beautiful.  I do nui (stitch) shibori, itajime (clamp) shibori, arashi (pole wrapping) shibori, and others. So far; I use indigo, cutch, and locally harvested rabbitbrush for the dyes. 

I dye at my home in beautiful central Utah.  I am inspired by traditional Japanese, Indian, African, etc. shaped resist dyed textiles and by the beauty that surrounds me. I homeschool three of my five children, and we harvest rabbitbrush blossoms near our home to create the dye.  I am exploring other possibilities for natural dyes. 

I buy my blank silk scarves from Dharma.  I also get the pre-reduced indigo, cutch extract, all my detergents, fabric softener, etc. From Dharma.  Dharma Trading Company is a critical part of my business. I love their great customer service and quick delivery.
