Color is a power that directly influences the soul-Wassily Kandinsky
Redefining the Role of Fabric to an Art
Continuing the craft of hand dyeing and hand printing in the digital age.
Melanie Audet Limited Editions is a small artist owned business in the Pikes Peak Region of Colorado. I hand dye and handprint fabric yardage in my home studio. The fabric yardage is sold as is or sewn into unique items. I have 20+ years of experience in this craft and I am constantly learning new things and evolving my knowledge. My main focus is on hand dyeing and at times I contract my sewing to small, independently run businesses in the US.
Changing perspectives with Hand Dyed Fabric
At Melanie Audet Limited Editions, my aim is to bring more awareness to the importance of fabric. By focusing my efforts on hand dyeing and hand printing small yards of fabric at a time, I hope to change how people view fabric. I hope to bring a deeper appreciation to the artistry and value fabric as well as the impact it has in our daily lives. By contracting some sewing to smaller, independently run businesses, we ensure a standard of safety in employee’s lifestyle and workplace. It’s no secret the fashion industry has a huge impact environmentally and socially. I’m hoping to offer an alternative. I hope this offering will begin a trend that eventually helps alleviate fashion’s massive impact.
