Dying with plants is a kind of boticanical alchemy, and in Eco Colour, artistic dyer and colorist India Flint teaches you how to cull and use leaves, roots, and flowers to color your cloth and yarn. From whole-dyed cloth and applied color to prints and layered dye techniques, India describes only ecologically sustainable plant-dye methods using renewable resources and takes the path of doing the least possible harm to the dyer, the end user of the object, and the environment.

Recipes include a number of entirely new processes developed by India herself, as well as guidelines for plant collection, directions for distillation of nontoxic mordants, and methodologies for applying plant dyes. Eco Colour inspires both the novice home dyer and textile professional seeking to extend their skills using India's successful methods for achieving ecologically friendly, stunning color.

A Must Have! Lush, Beautiful, Practical Knowledge!
My friend had a copy of this book and it intrigued me enough that I had to order a copy for myself. It's a visually beautiful book - from the "hand friendly' feel of the cover to the pages that are designed as eye candy. India Flint's techniques are easy and unique.The book is replete with the information you need about a variety of plants and mordants. All of the information that you need to get started are right there in the pages of the book. Since India Flint is Australian the the plants described are indigenous to that area - but many are easy to find in North America as well. The techniques described will work with any plant matter and the magic is in the trying and experimenting. I have managed to get some truly stunning results by following (and tweaking) the recipes. The real magic is in experimentation and when experimenting provides such delight it's well worth while! This book is an excellent addition to the library for any natural dye fan - or for any textile surface designer or admirer. I'm so happy that I splurged and bought this book!
