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.

"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"--Publisher's description.

This textbook introduces the industrial production and processing of natural resources. It is divided into six major topics (fats and oils, carbohydrates, lignin, terpenoids, other natural products, biorefinery), which are divided into a total of 20 chapters. Each chapter is self-contained and therefore a compact learning unit, which can be worked on by students in self-study or presented by lecturers. Clear illustrations, flow diagrams, apparatus drawings and photos facilitate the understanding of the subject matter. All chapters end with a succinct summary, the "Take Home Messages". Each chapter is supplemented by ten short test questions, which can be solved quickly after working through the chapter; the answers are at the end of the book. All chapters contain bibliographical references that focus on essential textbooks and reference works. As a prior knowledge, only basic knowledge of chemistry is required.

Learn the Japanese art of shibori, including tie-dyeing, folded, rolled, and sewn techniques, using indigo dye. Then make one of the 25 projects using the fabric you have created. Shibori is the name for a range of dyeing techniques that have been practiced in Japan for centuries. Using just plain white cloth and indigo dye, you can create a huge range of patterns that will each be unique. Full photographic step-by-step instructions are given for preparing the vat and plain dyeing, so you can master these steps before you move on to the different types of shibori. Each chapter then starts with a photographic step-by-step explanation of a different shibori technique. The first chapter covers kanoko and kumo (tie-dyeing with and without stones). Next there is shibori itajime (folding the fabric and clamping it between pieces of wood), then arashi (wrapping fabric around tubes), and nui (sewing and gathering the fabric with thread). After each technique has been explained, there are simple projects to make that show off the patterns you have created at their best. A sewing techniques section completes the book, with all the basic stitches and skills you will need to make the projects.

An international study of natural dyeing aimed at teaching beautiful techniques Similar to cooking and the act of sharing meals, our relationship to textiles is a core tenet of our human experience. Creating textiles cultivates connection, belonging, community, and friendships among people. In the world of textiles, natural dyeing is the closest we come to the act of cooking. Journeys in Natural Dyeing shares the story of Kristine Vejar and Adrienne Rodriguez’s travels to four countries—Iceland, Mexico, Japan, and Indonesia—where they visited natural dyers who use locally-sourced dyes to create textiles that evoke beauty, a connection to their environment, and showcase their mastery of skill. This book shares their process of using their own locally-grown dyes and includes recipes and projects to create more than 400 shades of color. In addition, you will learn how to use your own natural environment to create deep, beautiful colors. No matter where you live, creating color naturally is possible.
