Information of Dying Our Fabric

 

 

 


Information for Dying Our Fabric Cloth By Medina

Firstly, all the plant matter is collected from various tree’s growing on the land where they are
grown organically and without very little intervention from man. Once the plant matter has been selectively collected, it is then taken to the factory where it is then spread out on the ground, to dry
in the sun. Once the plant matter is very dry, which can take up to a week or two, depending on the weather conditions, hopefully, the sun is hot and shining. The plant matter is then put through a mulching machine, this hand driven machine which
breaks up the fibers, and from there it goes into big vats were it is then boiled and stirred for up to 10 hours.
This process releases the resins and the color from the plant matter.
Now the colors are ready to be used in the dying process.

Once the fabric’s are dyed they then undergo another treatment, with a mordant and this assists the colors to be set into the fabric. After the fabric is dyed the excess water then goes through a totally organic water treatment using water hyacinth. Once it has been treated to remove any unwanted resin’s etc, the water is so clean and healthy that it is able to go back and be used in the rice fields.
Using natural plant matter for dying is not like a commercial chemical dye, the color is much more sensitive and needs to be treated with more care. As one would with a silk shirt or a piece of cashmere clothing.

Our soft furnishings products still produced using a semi-modern & traditional technic to achieve a unique character for every piece.

Care Instructions
We suggest when washing the plant dyed fabric’s, to put them in an old pillowcase,
then into the washing machine, with cool water and a mild soap powder or liquid.
Once washed, spin only for a short time, then place the fabric outside, but not in direct sunlight.
Composition 100% cotton

Plants and their color properties
The color Red used for CLOTH fabric’s derives from the “Secang Tree”…..or the Biancaea Sappan
tree were we use the bark only to achieve the color.
This tree is native to South East Asia.
The color Indigo comes from the Tarum Tree, were we use the leaves of the tree
to achieve the intensity of deep blue.
The color Black and Charcoal derive from the same Ketapang tree / Red Almond Tree,
but it is the leaf that gives the color. The black is placed in the dying vat for a longer period of time than the charcoal color.

Greenery in Soft Furnishing Merchandising


A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

 

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

Responsibly Produce Products

Produksi yang bisa di pertanggung jawabkan.

Produksi yang bertanggung jawab melibatkan produksi barang dan jasa dengan cara etis yang melibatkan minimisasi limbah dan polusi. Pada masa lalu, sedikit pemikiran diberikan pada cara sumber daya digunakan dalam proses produksi. Penekanannya adalah pada menciptakan keuntungan maksimal dari sumber daya yang ada.

Hari ini diakui bahwa organisasi yang bertanggung jawab juga merupakan warga negara yang baik dan orang-orang yang menjaga lingkungan dengan cara yang bertanggung jawab. Oleh karena itu produksi yang bertanggung jawab melibatkan pengambilan berbagai isu yang termasuk di dalamnya adalah:

Meminimalkan emisi karbon pada semua tahap proses produksi
Mengurangi atau berusaha menghilangkan limbah.
Mengontrol dan mengurangi emisi dan polusi berbahaya akibat kegiatan produksi.
Memastikan bahwa semua persediaan berasal dari sumber yang berkelanjutan
Memantau dan meminimalkan dampak negatif terhadap lingkungan alam tempat produksi berlangsung
Menjadikan kesehatan lingkungan dan keselamatan yang terpenting.

Saat ini, adalah praktik umum untuk mengembangkan sistem pengelolaan produksi dan sistem lainnya. Misalnya Standar Inggris, Eropa dan Internasional telah menciptakan Standar Manajemen Lingkungan bagi perusahaan untuk mematuhi serta ISO 9000 yang merupakan standar internasional untuk manajemen mutu.

Dengan menyiapkan sistem agar sesuai dengan standar ini, organisasi dapat diakreditasi untuk memenuhi standar ini. Pemasok lain kemudian lebih cenderung untuk melakukan bisnis dengan organisasi-organisasi ini karena mereka telah menunjukkan bahwa mereka dapat menghasilkan dengan cara yang bertanggung jawab.


Responsible production planning.

Responsible production involves the production of goods and services in an ethical way which involves the minimisation of waste and pollution. In the past little thought was given to the way in which resources were used in the production process. The emphasis was on creating the maximum profit from resources available.

At #Cloth by Medina we are proud that we can provide such wide variety of products with responsibly produce production plan. https://www.facebook.com/clothbymedina/

Natural TieDye Range

As part of our CLOTH philosophy is to realise that products with environmentally friendly materials, sustainable, solid creations, with added value and local content is own a unique and strong hold in the boutique market place.
Starting 2014 Cloth trying to source some of local producer that use Natural TieDye Technique, finally we found some very eager local artisan that use the sustainability technique with minimum impact to environment.



The leaves are the only source of color for example color of indigo from tarum leaf, red from secang wood, yellow from mango leaf, brown from mahogany leaf, black from ketapang leaf and many more. Some of the advantages to using leaves as a coloring agent are:

  • Do not need to cut or kill the trees, harvesting multiple times
  • Trees benefit from pruning reducing leaves during some periods of time
  • Relatively easy to find, cultivate or can be in cooperation with farmers (for example)
  • Does not compete with food needs
  • Extracts are easy to make
  • Leaf waste is easily composted and returned to the soil
  • Raw material are a sustainable supply and can readily be replanted

Preparation of the materials include gathering, drying and cooking leaves to create dye extracts, usually 4-5 hours per batch.
Now the producer has its own garden in Tampak siring – Ubud to produce natural materials for dyeing, such as wood, leaves, fruits and flowers.

Cloth and the producer is promoting buyer / partner employment with the concept of “Green” environmentally friendly in marketing its products. This will create a new market and a different approach.

Cloth code of ethic and commitment to environmental responsible to picked Natural Tie dying techniques is a must, even though the production may have result in colour variances. These matters are accepted and appreciated by our loyal growing local & international audience of ‘Green’ buyers.

Happy Galungan & Kuningan | 7 Sept 2016

cloth-galungan


Every 210 days the Balinese religious holidays of Galungan and Kuningan recur, pegged to the ‘pawukon’ calendar. There has been a lot of conjecture which has made its way into mainstream literature on the subject presented as “fact” but some of it just doesn’t hold up to closer examination. (narative credit to balinowandthen.com

Happy Galungan to our loyal followers & customers
From all of us at CLOTH by medina – Retail Store – Ubud

Kalau melihat gambar ini, tak akan salah lagi, ingatan kita langsung tertuju kepada “The Island of a Thousand Temples – Bali”

Budaya dan adat istiadat yang berhasil di jaga dan di lestarikan oleh anak cucu Ibu pertiwi untuk terus memberikan nilai tambah kepada keseimbangan kehidupan para mahluk di dalamnya.

Di sisi lain adat istiadat yang sangat serat dengan ajaran agama HINDU telah memikat banyak WISMAN luar & dalam negeri.
Mereka dengan bangga ingin merasakan dan berbagi untuk satu tujuan “be a part of BALINESSE way of living.”

Kebanyakan dari mereka (Wisman) secara langsung dan tidak langsung mereka dengan bangga menyatakan “This Is My HOME”

Dengan semangat Galungan ini kita semua yang terlibat hendaknya dengan rasa & tanggung jawab tetap berjuang untuk melestarikan bumi pertiwi ini.

Kami keluarga besar CLOTH mengucapkan selamat HARI RAYA GALUNGAN, bagi semeton yang merayakannya…🙏

Retail Therapy by CLOTH BY MEDINA

IKAT CUSHION COVERS AT CLOTH BY MEDINA


 

IKAT CUSHION COVERS AT CLOTH BY MEDINA

20/01/16

Retail Therapy January 20, Bali Advertiser

Over Christmas & New Year the roads were crazy and now they are pretty quiet, what’s happened? 

Well, It’s the low season now, the road works are all but finished and the rains haven’t arrived?! 

However, it’s this time of year to re-group and work out a plan – a plan to carry us on throughout the year…(that’s if you haven’t made a plan yet) everyone is talking, Moderation and Balance, these are good words to start with, so stay on the path and don’t do astray…. Moderation and Balance in all things for 2016! 

Now the year has started and all one can see are empty shops, a number have closed and more to come I hear, never fear, more will take their place, although, perhaps not this year? one would have to agree that over the past years, there has been a build up of just too many shops, all selling the same type of merchandise which is not what we want to see, too many shops, too much the same. Believe 2016 will be a year of ‘leveling out’ too much excess, too much of everything, let’s pull back and re-think what we are doing. 

Certainly in retail there’s a handful of outstanding fashion stores and the same with furniture and home product and that’s about it!! Some retailers continue at working hard to bring excitement to their stores and many others are frankly lackluster. I feel for the visitors to our island, there is not enough unique merchandise that gives them a reason to ‘buy’. Some years ago it was much more exciting, both in the look of the stores (inside and out) and their offering (fashion or home product) There is just too much mediocre product around that simply doesn’t warrant getting cash out of the purse! 

So, we just wait to see what newness comes about meanwhile for an injection of retail therapy you get yourself up to Ubud, this town is rocking along beautifully! (apart from those dreadful buses that overcrowd the streets!) more and more of the better Seminyak stores have appeared which makes for a good shopping day out. But what is nice is that there are more artisans here, tucked in little shops making craft and plying their trade, this should be encouraged! 

And don’t forget to venture out to other village areas surrounding Ubud town, this is where you will find special items that you can incorporate into your home, drive down the main road through Mas

and you will see for yourself, all the way to Sukawati. 

And the other way up Andong Road, going north of Ubud, where you’ll see a plethora of small artisan shops on both sides of the road, for miles and miles!!

Speaking of which, one of my faves (which actually isn’t ‘a hole in the wall’ but a proper shop. CLOTH by Medina, Andong Rd, (on the right side of road not too far up, just drive slowly, parking at front, where there are trees! (www.clothbymedina.com) The owner is a delightful Australian named Carina and she sure knows her business, just to visit her shop is a joy. The merchandise is unique, the color blocking is great, her props instore are perfect, settings will give you lots of ideas for your home and the best point to note is that her product is crafted by artisans in villages; dyeing, spinning, making, sewing and the rest, now Carina is a real professional and it shows, she wins my vote for excellence in retail!

In fact, it’s becoming very apparent that the best product is by the clever artisans in Bali, let’s remember that Bali is the home of ‘handicraft’ but it’s taken on new meaning in recent years (I am not referring to the product in vast caverns like Oleh Oleh or similar haunts!) I mean exquisite quality hand crafted designer product that is made here from ceramics, wood, glass, artworks, fashion, leather, home product often exported to smart cities of the world….. 

Let’s support the terrific Artisans in Bali is my motto for 2016!

Aubergine & White

“Aubergine on the fabric conveys a sense of deep space. It’s expansive and tonally rich.
