Featured Artist : Herb Morehead


Artist Bio / Statement

Hello, my name is Herb Morehead. I'm a hand dyer in the Hill Country of central Texas. I work in fabrics and clothing of cotton, silk, linen and am starting to spin and weave as well. My silk scarves in white and black, t-shirts in white and black, bamboo fiber socks, dyes (MX), discharge chemicals, and all sorts of bottles and tools are from Dharma.

Dyed cotton for quilters, silk (dupioni, shangtung, silk/rayon velvet) for designers, tencel beach cover ups, all sorts of yarns -- I sell these out of my studio and in several local shops, by word of mouth, and in various craft shows and quilt shows.

I started dyeing again after a 30 year hiatus about five or six years ago. First, I was dyeing baby onesies, and now I am doing commissioned art pieces and I have several accounts in which I dye other people's products for their resale. I use a variety of techniques, especially Japanese Shibori styles and arashi/tube tying. I am also trying to understand Mudmee techniques better, and I believe I am getting there.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example: adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in any sizes will give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
