Natural dye - pomegranate
Pomegranate is a fruit that gives a lot of seeds that make it a symbol of prosperity of offspring and fertility. It was also often used as a Chinese medicine.
In Uzbekistan, there is a traditional hand-embroidered textile called Suzani, which is a beautiful textile that are sold on our shop as well. The motif of pomegranate is often used as a motif on Suzani like the cushion cover below.
The skin of the fruit is used for dyeing, and it dyes yellow and a unique bluish green or if you use the leaves, which contain a lot of iron, it would be chocolate color/brown color to black, depending on what you use as a mordant.
Why not find your favorite Suzani whether it is a contemporary or old Suzani?
