Onion Skin

At FIT's (Fashion Institute of Technology) sustainability conference yesterday, there was an abundance of really cool fabrics and clothing pieces made out of sustainable (and some animal-free) fibers and dyes. One of them being onion skin, who knew! (I didn't)

After doing a little more research, according to this article, onion skin is an amazing natural fabric dye that anyone can implement at home. 

If you're a textile lover, check out an article about this recently published book by the Textile Arts Center, in which natural dyes and solar-powered farms are discussed. 


Here are some of my favorite pieces from the conference:



Give me all the off-the-shoulder, gray, drapeable sustainable sweaters.
