All of the beautiful, useless things
That a vagabond’s aimless drifting brings.

Ellen von Unwerth for Grey #5.
This classic Ellen von Unwerth image is from the archives of Fashion Preservation Foundation. I often scroll down the pages to find inspiration for my pieces. This is my cayenne series. Not actually cayenne pepper, but all natural madder and cutch, amped up with alum and cream of tarter. Over dyed with indigo gives the same color combination as the iron colored garment against the denim colored sky in the photograph.
