In Malaysia and Laos, a red to purple dye is produced from the root of the Indian mulberry Morinda tinctoria. Appendixes list dyes mentioned in early dyers' manuals printed in America, and give excerpts from three 19th-century treatises which reveal literally hundreds of sources for natural dyestuffs. Today, dyeing with natural materials is often practiced as an adjunct to hand spinningknitting and weaving. These clothes were accompanied with lots of beads and huge chunky jewelry.
Munjeet was an important dye for the Asian cotton industry and is still used by craft dyers in Nepal. Vat dyes are essentially insoluble in water and incapable of dyeing fibres directly. Both woad and indigo have been used since ancient times in combination with yellow dyes to produce shades of green. Dyes can be extracted from roots, foliage, nuts, berries and flowers. Chrome or mordant dyes produced a muted but very fast color range for woollens. For the purposes of this web page I will be describing the mordant method used to dye cotton fibers.
Early dyes were obtained from animalvegetable or mineral sources, with no to very little processing. Using iron will produce a golden hue of yellow to brown. He spent much of his time at his Staffordshire dye works mastering the processes of dyeing with plant materials and making experiments in the revival of old or discovery of new methods. The choice of mordant is very important as different mordants can change the final color significantly.

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.
But at that time, the more colorful the attire, the more that woman was considered to be fashionable. Reactive dyes utilize a chromophore attached to a substituent that is capable of directly reacting with the fiber substrate. First the Churro wool yarn is dyed yellow with sagebrushArtemisia tridentataand then it is soaked in black dye afterbath.
Today disperse dyes are the only effective means of coloring many synthetics. The covalent bonds that attach reactive dye to natural fibers make them among the most permanent of dyes.
Carpet weavers throughout Turkey still use natural dyes to color the wool spun into yarn and handwoven into the brilliantly patterned carpets that can be seen all over the world.
Dyes employed by different civilizations are illustrated and relevant historical recipes and detailed descriptions of dyeing-processes by traditional dyers are quoted and explained in the light of modern science. This is achieved by treating a fiber with both diazoic and coupling components.
The batch is then kneaded with one's hands and strained. These petroleum based, synthetic dyes are used both in commercial textile production and in craft dyeing and have widely replaced natural dyes. Dyes can be extracted from roots, foliage, nuts, berries and flowers.
It was a primary supplier of indigo dye to Europe as early as the Greco-Roman era. Their main use is to dye polyesterbut they can also be used to dye nylon, cellulose triacetateand acrylic fibers. Puccoon or bloodroot Sanguinaria canadensis is a popular red dye among Southeastern Native American basketweavers.
In many cases the cost of these dyes far exceeded the cost of the wools and silks they colored, and often only the finest grades of fabrics were considered worthy of the best dyes. Erlich went on to use a compound to target syphillis, the first time a chemical was used in order to selectively kill bacteria in the body, he also used methylene blue to target the plasmodium responsible for malaria.
Today, dyeing with natural materials is often practiced as an adjunct to hand spinningknitting and weaving.
Vegetable gardens can be a wealth of colors for your natural dyes. You never know what you will discover! Many fungi are ideal natural sources for dyes. The new colors tended to fade and wash out, but they were inexpensive and could be produced in the vast quantities required by textile production in the industrial revolution.
Concisely written, well organized, this book will not only let you make all the dyes described in its pages, but will also give you the skills to make your own exciting discoveries in a field that has long been neglected. As a rule of thumb use one part raw material to two parts water.
