Indigo, Madder & Marigolds-A Portfolio of Colors from Natural Dyes

Author: Trudy Van Stralen

The rich, complex blues, greens, purples, reds, teals, golds, and browns of Renaissance tapestries and oriental rugs all come from natural dyes, and so do the glorious hues in this book. Using traditional dyestuffs, minimal mordants, and a creative approach to dye mixing, overdyeing, and pH modification, Trudy Van Stralen shows how to produce a stunning range of colors from just a few dyepots. Dozens of full-page photographs present a feast of color on fibers, yarns, and fabrics, along with instructions and recipes for reproducing them. The book includes in-depth discussion of more than twenty of the most important natural dyestuffs and more than 200 individuals recipes.
