Product description


This text gives an account of a wide range of plants from which natural dyes can be produced, as well as providing a general introduction to dyeing using natural materials. The authors have selected 48 plants from different parts of the world, describing each plants structure and cultivation, the history of its use as a dye source, and the method by which the dye is extracted and transferred to fibre. Well-known dye-plants are included, among them dyer's alkanet, elderberry, henna, indigo, madder and saffron, and each plant is illustrated in colour. It also includes a general introduction on dye-stuffs and mordants, a section of notes for teachers and a checklist for scientific names.
