This book by internationally renowned dyer, costumier and artist India Flint draws on her two decades of experience and experimentation in natural dyeing techniques to present an expert, highly accessible and achievable handbook of ecologically sustainable plant dye methods using renewable resources - most of them to be found in the average home garden. Eco Colour uses an exciting range of projects to demonstrate a variety of techniques, many of which have been specially developed by the author. Projects range from the simplest imaginable (solar dyeing, in which the fabric and dye material are placed in a closed jar and left for a few weeks in a sunny spot) to the positively romantic (dyeing with 'ice flowers'). Beautifully crafted, inspirational garments and homewares are used as the basis for dyeing techniques that produce a boundless range of pure, gentle, natural colourways.

5 of 5 Stars! '

This book is a superior publication, printed on quality recycled paper with superb photographs. Many aspects of environmental dyeing are discussed and a comprehensive list of suitable dye plants is included. Instructions are straightforward enabling readers to embark on experiments with plants from their own gardens. I am thrilled to be the owner of such a fine book.
