"Degummed"

Parsons School of Design, 2020

+ In my current program as a part of my Textiles & Materials module, we learned how to degum silk organza

+ I started with a basic beige silk organza and a lime silk organza. I proceeded to twist the two coloured fabrics together to create a plait and tied with rubber bands. Then I simmered the sample in soda ash diluted in boiling water for 45 mins. Below is the final product.
