About Eco-Printing
How did people color their clothes before the invention of chemical dyes? Organic matter such as plants and insects were used to dye fabrics. Natural minerals were also used to create beautiful colors.

“Eco-printing” is a form of natural dying technique, where plants are used in order to “print” on fabric. When the botanical materials, such as leaves and flowers, are laid out on fabric, bundled together and then steamed, they transfer their colors onto the fabric. Results are the watercolor-like images of leaves and flowers on the fabric.

Location: Visitor & Administration Building Terrace

This program is made possible by the New York City Artist Corps.
