Opinion Needed! Indigo Bucket Lining

I’ve been working hard building up stocks for the 3-day show I’m doing, Art For Heaven’s Sake starts this Friday!

While dyeing lots of indigo scarves, I’ve been dyeing some cotton sateen and linen as well, I’ve got 2 ideas up my sleeve. The first are these linen buckets:


The round shape allows me to dye one piece that’s just big enough to be the side of one or two buckets with no excess, allowing the patterning to be paramount. These 2 prototypes are lined with a natural colored osnaburg on the left, and a pure white on the right:


Which do you think works better with the indigo dyed linen?The natural on the left, or the white on the right?

I’d love to know, just comment below. Thanks!

  3. Lvoe the white over the natural color. A blue shade or red would be interesting and fun choices for a different look also. Loosk great!
