Other Useful books
This is a fab little book by India Flint, she documents and shows how to dye textiles using natural dyes and dying processes which is less harmful to the environment the designer and the wearer of the finished product.
India says 'The instructions and suggestions offered here may not always lead to permanent colours. On the other hand, you will have the satisfaction of being an explorer in your own backyard...if a colour doesn't last forever, the cloth can simply be dyed again. After all, our bodies change with time as well; our skins wrinkle and our hair goes grey. Faded cloth is more easily restored!'
Green is the new Black!!!
This book shows us that eco fashion doesnt mean tye dyed smocks. It has some georgous collections by Amerian Apparel and People Tree to name a couple.
