World 2, Exploration C

Instagram posts showing naturally dyed garments.

In World 2, synthetic dyes have been banned; as an alternative the people in this world have used natural dyes. This is a glimpse of a clothing brand from the world, incorporating the natural dye techniques and overall colour palettes that can been seen in this place. The shop’s Instagram page shows a wide range of products from this world and the different techniques and colours that are commonly used.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
