Safflower Blossom

Episode Notes

Project Info:

Level: All

Estimated time: 4-6 Hours

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Summer in Japan brings with it the beautiful colors of Safflower blossoms…the plants begin to product orange flowers, and as the days pass the color changes to a deep red. Used for centuries as a red dye, the Safflower fields are a sure sign of Summer.
Kate’s created a beautiful palette based on the designs in her chosen Kimono Cord. Want to create your own colorway? Simply choose your own Kimono Cord, then select a button, leather, stringing materials, Miyuki 8/0s, and CzechMates Tiles to match.
