This book gives recipes for someone who is trying to do natural dyeing for themselves or possibly a small business. The explanations of mordanting for different fabrics were clear.

The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing: Traditional Recipes for Modern Use by . If you have never explored natural dye substances, this book gives a decent overview of some of the plants and substances which can effect color. However, for someone who has a reasonable understanding of dye processes, it is woefully lacking in details and options. If you want serious, practical information, look to more "scientific" based sources, like from Sasha Duerr or India Flint.

Natural dyes are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. Artists of the Arts and Crafts Movement preferred the pure shades and subtle variability of natural dyes, which mellow with age but preserve their true colors, unlike early synthetic dyes, and helped ensure that the old European techniques for dyeing and printing with natural dyestuffs were preserved for use by home and craft dyers. Natural dyeing techniques are also preserved by artisans in traditional cultures around the world.

Anyone interested in dyeing with natural dyes should have this book. It goes into details about dyeing procedures and chemistry that other books don't touch on. While it is not necessary to know all of the details about the chemistry, ph, temperatures and so forth of dyes, as you get more involved, you might want these details. It make you more knowledge about how dyes work in general and if you are dyeing protein or cellulose fibers in particular what is needed for success.
Good job Mr. Liles for your contribution to understanding natural dyes.

I run a school garden and was looking for help with a dyeing project that would use plants we use in the garden. That’s not this book. This book gives recipes for someone who is trying to do natural dyeing for themselves or possibly a small business. I want to be able to go to the supermarket to buy carrots and spinach, like we have in the garden, nor indigo and saffron from the internet. The explanations of mordanting for different fabrics were clear. I appreciated that as I was finding conflicting information online. But this was definitely not the book I needed.

There's several books on natural dyeing available right now, and they probably all have their merits. A lot of them are intended to be easygoing introductions for the amateur; this is nothing to turn your nose up at, because we all start as amateurs and we need that kind of guidance. This book serves a different purpose. This is a compendium of Mr. Liles' careful research with natural dyes and mordants, closely observed and detailed for the adventurous home dyer. Every color of the rainbow on every kind of natural fabric (including cotton, often tricky to dye with natural dyes) is discussed here. If you want a magnificent reference source on natural dyes, something you will never exhaust--pardon the pun--this is the book to get.

Probably the most exhaustive guide to natural dying available in readable form. Offers many options for dye recipes. Those I have tried have worked well. The reader needs to pay attention to every word in the test, though, such as references to the water the type of water used, as the results may be dramatically different.

Ylal
Great book on natural dyeing. A must have. In reading it with a highlighter. Great info and recipes for wool and cotton or flax

Jorius
Fast ship, thanks! Very detailed instructions. This book is written for the very serious student of natural dyeing. Excellent book.

I've seen it referred to so often by other craft people, so thought I really should have a copy. It's an excellent resource and I refer to it often in my own research and experience with natural dyes - including indigo.

Great book on natural dying. Very thorough approach with different way to experiment with dyes.I highly recommend this book .
