And my answer is always invariably, traditional textiles, and that is all I have, a really good collection of traditional textiles made locally. Below is an excellent example of traditional dyeing, an art which has been practiced in many parts of the world, for millenniums. So this book is going to tell you all about how you can enjoy a brand-new activity, that of dyeing, as done in the East and in the West with natural products. You can see the neck in a different color design, and the border of the shirt made up with a white traditional border design. All I have to do is press this cloth after washing it, pressing it, and then cutting it, according to my own specifications and stitching it to make an excellent tie-dye shirt. So now let us begin with the art of dyeing, which is almost forgotten today, even though once upon a time with a great number of chemicals dyes coming into the market in the Victorian era, every single piece of cloth was dyed in really colorful, discordant, and really bright hues. If you look at some of the clothing worn by women in the 18th and 19th century, you should not be surprised if they wore dresses made up with green, orange, vermilion, scarlet, red, pink, and any other color of their choice, all mixed together like that of a colorful parakeet. And that was the fashion. Today, we are going to call that loud fashion sense “noisy and tasteless.” That is because it is possible that we prefer more subdued colors instead of dark and clashing colors all mixed up in rainbow hues in just one garment. But at that time, the more colorful the attire, the more that woman was considered to be fashionable. Tie-dye traditionally happens to be the art of resistance dyeing. You can get distinctive patterns by just tying the fabric into pleats, folds, knots, and even scrunches. This is going to prevent the dye from penetrating certain areas. My mother told me that she and her younger sister were taught a particular subject, at school in England after the 2nd world war, called Domestic Science, and these types of courses were even taught at the college level. I was looking in my aunt’s practical books, and found plenty of tie and dye patterns, which had to be made by the students, in order to pass the Degree Course. These techniques have been around for centuries, all over the world, especially in West Africa, where it is called batik, in Asia, and in southeastern Asia. The flower children of course used to wear plenty of tie and dye clothing, in the 50s and 60s and this particular dress happened to be emblematic of the free-spirited day and age of that particular era. These clothes were accompanied with lots of beads and huge chunky jewelry. So let us begin with tips on how to dye properly.

Vegetable Dyes: Being a book of Recipes and other information useful to the Dyer by Ethel M. Mairet. Natural dyes are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from plant sources -roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood - and other organic sources such as fungi and lichens. Archaeologists have found evidence of textile dyeing dating back to the Neolithic period. In China, dyeing with plants, barks and insects has been traced back more than 5,000 years. The essential process of dyeing changed little over time. Typically, the dye material is put in a pot of water and then the textiles to be dyed are added to the pot, which is heated and stirred until the color is transferred. Textile fiber may be dyed before spinning ("dyed in the wool"), but most textiles are "yarn-dyed" or "piece-dyed" after weaving. Many natural dyes require the use of chemicals called mordants to bind the dye to the textile fibers; tannin from oak galls, salt, natural alum, vinegar, and ammonia from stale urine were used by early dyers. Many mordants, and some dyes themselves, produce strong odors, and large-scale dyeworks were often isolated in their own districts. Throughout history, people have dyed their textiles using common, locally available materials, but scarce dyestuffs that produced brilliant and permanent colors such as the natural invertebrate dyes, Tyrian purple and crimson kermes, became highly prized luxury items in the ancient and medieval world. Plant-based dyes such as woad (Isatis tinctoria), indigo, saffron, and madder were raised commercially and were important trade goods in the economies of Asia and Europe. Across Asia and Africa, patterned fabrics were produced using resist dyeing techniques to control the absorption of color in piece-dyed cloth. such as cochineal and logwood (Haematoxylum campechianum) were brought to Europe by the Spanish treasure fleets, and the dyestuffs of Europe were carried by colonists to America.

This introductory text assumes little prior scientific knowledge on the part of the student. It includes sufficient information for some shorter introductory botany courses open to both majors and nonmajors, and is arranged so that certain sections can be omitted without disrupting the overall continuity of the course. Stern emphasizes current interests while presenting basic botanical principles.

The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing

"This is the most comprehensive manual written on natural dyes since the early 1800s. Jim Liles has rescued ancient skills from near-extinction and shared them in a book that will inspire, challenge, and guide the modern dyer."--Rita Buchanan, author of A Weaver's Garden, and editor of the new Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Handbook on Natural Dyes " . . . a must for every dyer. The recipes are explicit and detailed as to success and failure."--Mary Frances Davidson For several thousand years, all dyes were of animal, vegetable, or mineral origin, and many ancient civilizations possessed excellent dye technologies. The first synthetic dye was produced in 1856, and the use of traditional dyes declined rapidly thereafter. By 1915 few non-synthetics were used by industry or craftspeople. The craft revivals of the 1920s explored traditional methods of natural dyeing to some extent, particularly with wool, although the great eighteenth- and nineteenth-century dye manuals, which recorded the older processes, remained largely forgotten. In The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing, J. N. Liles consolidates the lore of the older dyers with his own first-hand experience to produce both a history of natural dyes and a practical manual for using pre-synthetic era processes on all the natural fibers--cotton, linen, silk, and wool. A general section on dyeing and mordanting and a glossary introduce the beginner to dye technology. In subsequent chapters, Liles summarizes the traditional dye methods available for each major color group. Scores of recipes provide detailed instructions on how to collect ingredients--flowers, weeds, insects, wood, minerals--prepare the dyevat, troubleshoot, and achieve specific shades. The book will appeal not only to beginning and veteran dyers but to students of restorations and reconstruction as well as to craftspeople--spinners, quilters, weavers, knitters, and other textile artists--interested in natural dyes for their beauty and historical authenticity. The Author: J. N. Liles is professor of zoology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He has taught at Arrowmont School and other regional craft schools and has exhibited his work at the Arrowmont School, the Southern Highland Handicraft Guild Folk Art Center, and the Carol Reece Museum.

The publication reports the results of tests on about 65 natural dye materials when used for dyeing cotton and wool cloth. Most of the dyes studied are of vegetable origin. In fact the terms natural and vegetable dyes are often used interchangeably though a few, such as cochineal, are of animal origin and iron buff and some others are developed from mineral pigments.
