Summary
Liven up a set of pillowcases with the dappled pinks and purples of avocado pits, bring a wool scarf to life with the brilliant red of madder root, and create a unique radial pattern on a leather bag using ancient Japanese techniques and dye made from purple plum branch. The potential for discovering amazing color surrounds us every day; from inky blues to neon chartreuses, and everything in between. But usually these hues are hidden inside the stem of an Oxalis flower, or buried deep within a pinecone. Natural Color, structured by season, unearths the full spectrum of plant dyes available, unlocking nature's vibrant color library. Sasha Duerr, designer, artist, and professor, using sustainable methods and artisanal techniques, provides achievable projects and recipes that apply these limitless color possibilities to your home and wardrobe. Natural Color with recipes to dye everything from dresses and sweaters to rugs and napkins, will inspire savvy fashionistas, home decorators, and everyone else who wants to bring more color into their life, whether a beginning dyer or seasoned dyer. -- Provided by publisher, taken from verso of front cover
