A textile workshop in Paris mixes dyes together using leftover food materials and plants

Typically, you keep food away from your blankets—or throw them into the wash to remove any stains. At Whole, a textile workshop in Paris, food scraps hold a lot of value for designer Aurélia Wolff, who repurposes the scraps to create specially designed dyes to use on woven blankets and cushions.

The dyes are mixed together with local plants and leftover food. These blends go to textile mills, which then incorporate it into their materials, such as wool, linen and cotton. Whole has designed numerous collections of woven goods with these dyes for babies, children and home decor.

Whole also  plans to launch a DIY kit for families to make their own dyes at home.
