Hello! I've recently gotten into weaving rattan baskets and I want to try natural dyeing them, but was wondering if I will need a mordant for them or if I can just let the reeds soak?
Thanks all!

I would think so, but I wouldn't know which ones work well on rattan. I added this to the dyeing and art forums, see if we attract someone wiser than me :D
