A Heritage of Color

Natural Dyes Past and Present

A Heritage of Colour explores the techniques that can be used to create a wealth of colors from 50 plants, including many that have been in constant use as dyes for over 2000 years. Inspired by the colors on textile fragments from the Iron Age and by the achievements of early dyers, the author describes some of the dyes and methods of the past and considers how they can be adapted for use by today’s dyers. The book covers all the basics of natural dyeing and explains in detail how to experiment with local plants, wherever you may live, to produce a wide range of beautiful, rich colours on textile fibres. A Heritage of Colour also includes sections on dyeing with fungi, contact printing on cloth and dyeing multi-coloured fibers and fabrics. The emphasis throughout is on environmentally-friendly methods and on the thrill of personal discovery through practical experience. Softcover, 160 pages; Search Press
