the making of: abyss bedding

Sometimes, a “handmade” description doesn’t tell the story quite like a picture. The following detail abyss bedding in the making—completely by hand.

250-thread-count cotton is stretched and silkscreened with a mud resist which will create the grid pattern. Fabric is then gathered and tied for dyeing.

Dye is measured by weight, then heated over a wood burning fire. In the final processes, fabric is thoroughly rinsed and air dried.
