I’m in love with these gorgeous tea towels by watercolor artist Yao Cheng today – it looks absolutely vivid and bright, and I found out that she doesn’t print them digitally – instead, she prints through a reactive dye process.
What I love about these towels is that it is completely color-fast. These linen cotton blends are printed through a reactive dye process in which the colors are dyed directly into the fabric rather than sitting on top like with pigment printing. The difference is truly extraordinary, most noticeably is the saturated color range and the color fastness of the fabric. ~ Yao Cheng [link]
