ABOUT ME

I am Bahar Bozacı, textile artist and eco printer from İzmir in Turkey. After discovering that in the textile industry is mostly common to use harmfull chemical dyes I decided that I wanted to try an eco-friendly technique for textile fabrics so I searched about the eco-printing technique. Now Iexpress myself using this beautiful technique. I use eco-printed and botanical dyed fabrics and threads as a background for my work and by using lino print or stitch or patchwork, I try to create a painting on the textile surface.
…In each of my eco-friendly work there is a secret story behind it…

Actually metaphysics Inspired me to get into what I do

One day while I was walking, suddenly I shuddered, turned to my right and saw the trees. I saw the trees in a big street getting together and holding  each other very closely. I always see the trees in the city but this time it was different. They were just like saying ‘ hey we are here you are not alone, you belong to us…I just realized that people were living like robots and forgot where they came from. We have built a big civilization but in fact we are so alone…because we have forgotten mother earth. Our egos are bigger than  nature  and do not remember that we are still mortal and will turn to dust…not important than the plants or animals.. just a human…So what is this arrogance for? People do not hear the voice of the nature. Once we knew how to connect with the animals and plants…

One night I had a dream that I was by the sea suddenly everywhere in the World began to move and changed to liquid like quicksilver, everything was made of quicksilver, the mountains, the sea, the trees, even me… suddenly a dolphin jumped in to the see it was quicksilver too. By the help of that dream I realized that everything in this World is made of same thing. As Indian Chief Seattle says ‘ All thing share the same breath, the beast, the tree, the man. ..The air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.’ That was the beginning of my real adventure….back to nature…

we are part of universe, just like the bulbs that give light. Do not we give the same light and connect the same electricity? We are all made of same thing, why do we destroy each other? We still think that we are unconnected whereas we belong to big soul of the universe and the nature is just like the electric cable that connect us to the universe. What is arrogance of destroy that we have ?

BOOK

WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT

Eco printing is an eco friendly technique which involves bundling leaves in cloth or felt and then steaming or dyeing the bundles in a plant based dye vat. Under the right conditions, the prolonged contact of the leaf on the cloth can make a beautiful print. Eco printing, also known as eco bundling, “Nature printing with steam”, it just easily explain the process. This involves the transference of plant imagery and patterning into cloth harnessing the substances contained within the plants themselves to provide print and colour. The textiles are mostly pre-mordanted and sometimes co-mordanted or post-mordanted. The fibres used are silk, wool, cotton and linen. Eco printing results vary according to many conditions – plant part used, processing time, water quality and pH balance, mordant, processing method, fibre type (protein, cellulose or synthetic etc.)
