Description - Natural Color by Sasha Duerr

An exploration and appreciation of the brilliant spectrum of colors derived from plants, with seasonal, project-based ideas for using these natural dyes to color your clothing and home.

Following the incredible success of the slow food movement, the slow fashion trend is now gaining momentum, with more and more consumers buying locally produced clothing and homewares created using sustainable methods and artisanal techniques. Natural Color explores the full spectrum of seasonal plant dyes, using nature as a color library. Unlike its competitors, Natural Color is structured by season, not plant, focusing on achievable projects with easy-to-follow recipes for dyeing everything from dresses, scarves, and hats to rugs, napkins, and table runners, ensuring that even the most savvy home decorator will be inspired.
