Book Description

Discover indigo, one of the world’s most popular plant-based dyes, and use it to enliven your own garments and crafts! 
Explore the gorgeous possibilities of dyeing with indigo with this stunning and practical handbook that takes you through it all: growing the plant; mastering warm or cold dyeing with indigo, fructose, hydrosulfite, and fermented vats; making multicoloured projects; and troubleshooting potential problems. Create intricate moyo-sashi and hitome-sashi embroidery, patchwork quilts, resist-dyed patterns, and more. Both beginners and experienced dyers will feel inspired to work with this wide range of innovative recipes and unique projects.
