With a bit of chemistry and a bit of cooking, return to nature and the cycle of seasons. Take your time testing colors, mixing, heating, drying, and starting over again. It's about paying close attention to the colors that plants offer us in order to use them when creating textiles.
Aurélia Wolff mixes leaves, roots, bark and/or flowers, to create color charts which she explores on different materials: skeins of wool, weaving, knitting yarns, organic fabrics or recuperated fabrics, cultivated flax, all made in France. As an artisan, she shares in this book the fruits of her experience in natural dyeing and her approach in respects to the environment.
This scholarly and practical guide mixes recipes and theory, history and inspirations, to explore the world that is so rich in vegetable dyes, and in turn try to play with the palettes that nature offers us.
