Descriptions du produit

Eco Colour: Environmentally Sustainable Dyes, by internationally renowned dyer, costumier and artist India Flint, draws on her two decades of experience and experimentation in natural dyeing techniques to present an expert, highly accessible and achievable handbook of ecologically sustainable plant dye methods using renewable resources, most of which can be found in the average home garden. Eco Colour fills a gap in the existing literature and uses an exciting range of projects to demonstrate a variety of techniques, some of them entirely new processes developed by the author. Projects range from the simplest imaginable, such as solar dyeing, in which the fabric and dye material are placed in a closed jar and left for a few weeks in a sunny spot, to the positively romantic including dyeing with 'ice-flowers'. The result is a boundless range of pure, gentle, natural colours produced with the least possible harm to the environment and the dyer.

Je cherchais un livre qui m'indique comment faire pour teindre moi-même des étoffes avec des plantes naturelles. L'auteure est une experte de la question et utilise les plantes tinctoriales pour sa propre pratique créative. Un livre en tous points intéressant, avec des listes de plantes surprenantes, des "recettes" de fabrication complètes et une description détaillée des procédés.
A recommander pour toute personne intéressée par le sujet. En anglais seulement!

Ce livre a de jolies illustrations, les techniques sont très bien expliquées, avec de nombreuses recettes de solutions et des conseils très utiles.Je suis très contente d'avoir étudié ce livre sur les techniques de teintures végétales, qui se distingue très agréablement des autres livres portant sur ces techniques. Contrairement à ce que certains sites français prétendent, India Flint n'est pas une technique, mais une artiste très proche de la nature. J'ai déjà testé des techniques avec certaines plantes trouvées près de chez moi, dans le Beaujolais et dans mon jardin floral et potager : les couleurs correspondent aux couleurs que j'aime, d'un ton pastel qui contrastent agréablement avec certaines couleurs agressives de la teinture au Procion pas assez diluées.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, amiable, but near useless for newbies 6 mars 2013
Par S. Ahern - Publié sur Amazon.com

I noticed others' complaints that this book lacked "recipes," and assumed they wanted very exact procedures with exact ingredients and amounts.

Usually satisfied with more abstract instruction, I went ahead and ordered it -- expecting still to find outlines of generic procedures, some suggested effective combinations of mordants and plant materials, and a bit of orientation for those of us whose prior dying experience has been limited to commercial synthetic dyes on the stovetop.

Be warned: What little this book offers in the way of instruction is buried in long, wool-gathering reflections and chatty anecdotes. If you can discern a complete process, you will have extracted it by flipping around scanning for hints, in rambling text nearly free of useful rubrics other than chapter headings. It may please you to know, from an amusing sidebar, that the ancient Scots considered little boys' urine ideal for dying with one particular material (woad). But I, for one, would like to know for any of the mordants: how much, for how long, in approximately what dilution, for what fiber types, and when in the process?

No-one is born knowing this stuff; we buy books in hopes of learning it. India's work is inspiring to look at and her beautiful book would grace an artsy coffee table, but her prose misses the tutorial mark pretty badly.

Par C. Reed - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book has made me take a second look at botanical dyes. This is not a recipe book. Ms. Flint opens up your eyes to all of the dye stuffs in your neighborhood. Like the slow food movement, she advises getting dyestuff close to home. She shares basic principals for getting the color out of common plants. She describes ways to fix color to silk, wool and cellulose fabrics and spinning fibers. She cuts out the nasty metallic salts as mordants by adding time and not always using heat. Her plants and dyes need to cure or age with the cloth. What that means is that a few minutes are spent applying the color and then you set the cloth aside for days or even months before you finish the process. This could work quite well in my busy life. Her philosophy is captured in one of her tips about hapazome, beating plants on cloth to color them. This technique is not as colorfast as the other techniques. But she tells us to embrace this. Decorate a garment in the spring with those flowers and leaves. As the design fades, add to it with summer blossoms and refresh the fabric again in the fall for an ever-changing fabric.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book, lots of info 12 juin 2011
Par M. Fregia - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book has a wealth of gorgeous photography and tons of information on coloring with botanicals. If I stopped there, it would get 5 stars.

The main drawback is that the book's organization is awkward, requiring much study and flipping around to figure out how best to use the botanicals at your disposal. To be fair, much of the information is complicated, making it hard to organize; and there is a good index to help you find that stray sentence you need. If you are willing to plow through and experiment, Eco Colour is a great foundation and inspiration. There are actually a couple "recipes" for quick and easy eco-prints, but patience is still required (the author advises waiting a week to open that lovely bundle of now-rosy silk I tinted with red onion skins!) When you try the flower pounding, please do take the author's advice to make a trial, even if you have limited plant material to work with! :-)

One thing the reader should not miss is that the author admitted drawing during chemistry class! She mentions early in the book the reliable color results that can be obtained using certain chemicals, without the specific caution that these are quite toxic, cautions she does, however, repeat concerning plants that are poisonous, etc. (Please be sure to look up an MSDS if you are tempted to order any chrome salts, etc.)

One of the most helpful things to me was the extensive information on the friendlier mordants, which ones are useful on which types of fiber, and how various ones may affect the final colors you will achieve. We benefit also from little tricks she has learned, such as freezing certain flowers or berries to extract the most color. (Spent blossoms are in the freezer now and will be my next project.) I was fascinated with her ingenuity in figuring out how to dye "on the road" with botanicals encountered while traveling.

While chemical dyes (such as Procion MX) are safe, much easier, more predictable, wash- and light-fast, there is a definite allure to trying to capture the beauty of the plants around us to color our clothing and other fabrics, even if it is fleeting. Eco Colour is a great book for your adventure.

I bought this book two years ago thinking I would find directions on Eco dying. I believe the book is used as bait to take the authors workshop. There is no defined instruction or cookbook recipes, and only vague descriptions with a lot of the authors Eco-spiritual philosophy scattered throughout.
I ended up taking India Flints week long workshop, which she promotes and teaches all over the World, after attempting, with some good results, a DIY approach for quite some time.
Let me tell you, if this book wets your appetite and you want a hands on experience with Ms. Flint...you may be in for an expensive retreat considering lodging, meals, travel expenses, etc... She stretches the week out as best she can with hours spent on gathering local windfall, time chatting up her Eco spiritual approach, a half day was spent learning to stitch personal initials into fabric while she recited her poetry in the background, and then... she barely reveals the dynamics of the process at hand, her secrets of the technique are not revealed only basics are covered. At the end of the five days I was exhausted from straining to hear her, because after numerous request from different students to speak up, she quite literately refused! Also, the results of the class were less than striking and quite dull in appearance...nothing as vibrant and defined as the work she has accomplished and published in her books and on her media sites.
In my opinion India Flint is a businesswoman first, and she wants to milk her expertise for as long as she can before her competition spreads the nuts and bolts of this alluring and beautiful surface design technique. Buy the book if you want to get the gist of Eco printing. But if you are a serious fiber artist and textile designer Irit Dulman is the Eco dyer to follow! Taking her three day workshop taught me everything I needed to know about creating dynamic and elaborate Eco prints, plus how to design with botanicals on clothing. If only she would write a book on the topic...which unfortunately she has not.

The book lacks warmth and clarity.

The author is somewhat prickly and seems to be the Self Appointed "Green Police". She comes across as disrespectful to other Artists who use other dye methods than she chooses to use and it feels bad to me to use a book in this way. It is not necessary at all in my opinion..just show us what you do...that is why we bought the book!

It seems to me that if you want to bring change to the world you are a lot further ahead simply setting an example by doing what you do, loving what you do and SHARING freely what you do...I don't see any of these qualities in her writing.

Beyond that, the book is hard to use and I suspect it is designed that way on purpose.

Some of her pieces are quite beautiful and interesting.
