Colouring with nature / Siti Nur Aina Aqilah Binti Malek

Malek, Siti Nur Aina Aqilah (2022) Colouring with nature / Siti Nur Aina Aqilah Binti Malek. In: dyeco - Textile Eco Exploration of Natural Dyes. College of Creative Arts, p. 37. ISBN 9786299847014


This piece of art explains the process of creating patterns and colours using natural dyes. Local fruits including mangosteen, dragon fruit, butterfly pea, and catappa leaves are the source for producing natural dyes. As a designer, I use my imagination to process the design while drawing inspiration from local batik design compositions as reference and using motifs from five subject matters I have chosen. My artworks are 100 percent naturally produced using localresources, and my unique designs are created to suit the local Malay market.
