Colours to Dye For

Located near the Granville Island Market, across from the square with it's daily performers, is Maiwa's wool and dye shop. This unique shop is filled to the brim with rich colours in the forms of wool, cotton, linen and yarn. Hand printed and hand dyed fabrics are sold by the meter, smaller remands are also available and are ideal for quilting. My find-of-the-day was some swatches of linen, neatly tied in a roll, naturally dyed & block printed, 20 pieces in all. I have already converted the linen into a handsome tablecloth for two, reminiscent of an old world market and the colours of spice.
