Natural dye workshops 2019

Recent movements in the textile industry towards a more sustainable approach have generated research into the use of bio-mordants. These use naturally occurring copper and aluminium that hyper accumulates in some plant species and can be used to replaces the chemicals presently used, some of which are toxic and polluting. This, together with the exploration of novel dye-materials, such as industrial waste, like fruit peel from the juice industry, make it an inspiring and challenging time to be involved in this area of sustainable design.
