Natural Color: Vibrant Plant Dye Projects for Your Home & Wardrobe

A gorgeous, heavily photographed guide to making natural plant dyes and using these dyes to create clothing and home decor, with over two dozen projects and ideas for every season, and detailed instructions on dye methods, and botanical information about the plants used.

With interest in environmentally responsible living, a growing DIY culture, and a return to forgotten and artisan skills, the time for an accessible and inspiring book on using natural plant dyes is now. Organized by season, Natural Color shows how you can create vibrantly hued pillow, rugs, napkins, tablecloths, and clothing and accessories for yourself and your family using the centuries old technique of dyeing with plants, food scaps, garden clippings. Unlike the competition, which are organized around plant, Natural Color focuses on achievable projects throughout the seasons, making this book usable to a wide variety of readers.
