Dalia Glyndebourne Dye Garden Silk Scarf
Jenny Mercer from the Glyndebourne Costume department and Andrea Benson from the Glyndebourne Gardening team have been collaborating since 2018 with the aim of improving sustainability practices in the Dye department which uses plants from the garden to dye Glyndebourne costumes.
A dedicated dye garden was created in 2019 to provide specific plant material, with some still foraged from the larger Glyndebourne estate.
For Festival 2023 this Glyndebourne collaboration has created two dye garden silk scarves. This Dahlia Silk Scarf was dyed from the flowers of a yellow dahlia.
