Summary

Eco Colour: Environmentally Sustainable Dyes, by internationally renowned dyer and artist India Flint, draws on her 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 which can be found in the average home garden.

Eco Colour is regarded by many as a textbook of sustainability and uses an exciting range of projects to demonstrate a variety of techniques, some of them processes developed by the author, including the now widely adopted ecoprint. Projects range from the simplest imaginable, such as 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, including dyeing with 'ice-flowers'. The result is a boundless range of pure, gentle, natural colours produced with the least possible harm to the environment and the dyer.

Author Biography

Artist and writer India Flint's works are represented in collections and museums in Germany, Latvia and Australia. She lives on a farm in rural South Australia, researching plant dyes, making artworks and planting trees. India's textile practice has embraced theatre, art and fashion and formerly also a range of salvage clothing under the label 'prophet of bloom'. In 2018 she launched the School of Nomad Arts, offering online courses as a means of teaching a wider demographic while reducing her "travel footprint" on the planet.
