These are lovely images. I recently heard about another Japanese dyeing process. You place flowers or leaves between layers of natural fabric. Then bang them carefully with a hammer to break up the fibres and let the natural dyes run into the fabric in a rough shape of the flower. Then iron it to fix the dye. I haven't been able to find out the name of this method. But had a little go and amazingly it works!
