We are excited to welcome Lee and LSS Luscious Knits to the Chicago Artisan Market on Sunday, December 2, 2018 (Holiday Market) at Morgan MFG, where they will be joined 110+ top artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art.
Two main focuses of the shop:
• Knits – hats, mittens, fingerless gloves and neckwarmers, using only luxury, natural fibers.
• Ice-dyed work – accessories and home decor such as headbands, scarves, table linens, aprons, coaster sets, bandanas and more.
What is ice-dyeing?
Ice dyeing is similar to tie-dye, but the result is a more muted, watercolor-esque outcome. The material to be dyed is scrunched up and laid on a rack with ice piled high on top of it. Powdered coloring is sprinkled over the ice, and as the ice melts, the colors mix and blend onto the material, providing a softer result than the traditional tie-dye of eras past. The ice-dye process takes 24 hours.
