Natural Dyeing

This is my first natural dyeing after attending a workshop in natural dyeing. I am using silk pieces from linings of kimonos. The one to the left is black beans with baking soda added and then put in iron for a mordant. The one on the right is Mexican beans and pods and using iron as a mordant. I like the dark grey, but the taupe I will probably dye again in something.
