Books - Indigo Dyeing

A Handbook Of Indigo Dyeing
by Vivien Prideaux

Vivien Prideaux presents a stimulating and inspirational guide in which she shows how an amazing range rich and subtle colours can be created using indigo dye. Beautiful pictures of wonderful embroidered and quilted designs accompany detailed advice on the materials required, preparing the fabric and the dyeing methods. Using Shibori techniques folding, pleating, clamping, stitch and pole wrapping, the author illustrates all the different stages, using clear step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow text. A stunning sequence of inspirational projects have been specially chosen to develop skills and build confidence, with instructions on how to make a kimono, a jacket, a silk velvet quilt, a scarf and more.

Debbie says: "This well-illustrated and simple-to-follow book will guide you through a number of methods for indigo dyeing, including the zinc-lime vat, fermentation vat and the chemical vat. The book focuses on fabric but the methods and recipes can be readily translated into yarn and fibre applications. For textile artists there is some excellent information on traditional resist dyeing, pleating, batik etc".
