Colours from Nature: A Dyer’s Handbook

Malgré sa petite taille, ce guide est très complet et particulièrement bien fait. Les recettes sont classées par couleurs, et aucun produit toxique tel que le chrome ou l’étain, n’est employé.

Colours From Nature describes in full detail how to prepare and use natural dyes on a variety of fibres to produce a wide range of colours, following safe and environmentally-friendly methods. The comprehensive recipe section gives instructions for over 100 colours, using both traditional dyes such as cochineal, indigo, madder and weld, and dyes from more common plants such as blackberry, rhubarb, oak and walnut.
