Download Free The Art And Science Of Natural Dyes Book in PDF and EPUB Free Download. You can read online The Art And Science Of Natural Dyes and write the review.

This long-awaited guide serves as a tool to explain the general principles of natural dyeing, and to help dyers to become more accomplished at their craft through an increased understanding of the process. Photos of more than 450 samples demonstrate the results of actual dye tests, and detailed information covers every aspect of natural dyeing including theory, fibers, mordants, dyes, printing, organic indigo vats, finishing, and the evaluation of dye fastness. Special techniques of printing and discharging indigo are featured as well. The book is intended for dyers and printers who wish to more completely understand the "why" and the "how," while ensuring safe and sustainable practices. Written by a textile engineer and chemist (Boutrup) and a textile artist and practitioner (Ellis), its detailed and tested recipes for every process, including charts and comparisons, make it the ideal resource for dyers with all levels of experience.
The Art of natural dyeing The Complete Guide with Recipes for Beginners to Making and Using Natural Dyes Plant leaves, flowers, barks and roots, minerals, microbiological origin and insects are naturally rich resources for dyes. This book includes the basics and its classification of natural dyes, mordant used, name of the phytochemical in plants and more than 50 recipes used for making successful natural dyeing. Also, environmentally friendly techniques such as application of various enzymes with natural colorants was outlined. This book is mainly divided into two parts.Part 1 deal about the *Classifications and various sources of natural dyes obtained, *Types of mordants and fibres used in textile industries Part 2 aims to teach about the *Various recipes for making natural dyeing using different sources of plants materials for both plant and animal fibres. *Unique techniques Enzymes Assisted dyeing recipes are featured as well. Author explains in step- by- step procedures to extract the natural dyes from various plants, fruits, vegetables and roots. He also sharing his vast experiences to perform the dyeing experiments using the enzymes for natural dyeing for new ones in this field. The book is a complete resource materials for those who want start the natural dyeing and know the science of how the dyeing occurs on the fibres. By reading this book, you will able to *Know the importance of mordants and its types *Various sources of natural dyes *Work independently work with natural dyes extraction in smart way* How to use enzymes during natural dyeing process
Natural Dyes : Scope and challenges is a comprehensive, thoroughly scientific, single source reference book on natural dye stuffs and dyeing. This book provides a detailed chemistry of all the available natural dyes and also of the food colors. Analytical methods including extraction, identification and estimation of the chemical components of these dyes, which will help in the production of quality dyes, are discussed. The applications of these dyes in pharmaceuticals, herbal cosmetics, paints and paintings also are explained. The challenges lying ahead due to the greater demand resulted from the ever-increasing acceptance and demand of these dyes and their solutions are discussed. Substitute sources, new chromophores, bioactivities including antioxidant potential and antimicrobial properties of the plant-derived dyes also are dovetailed. This book will serve as a reference book for students, teachers and workers of Textile dyeing, Textile chemistry, Clothing and textiles, Plant Sciences, Pharmacy and Fine Arts. It will also of great use for NGOs and farmers who would be interested in value-addition of their trees, commercial manufacturers of natural dyes and even to a layman interested in natural colors.
Describes traditional methods of extracting pigmented materials from trees and plants and provides several dye recipes
At a time when more and more plants and animals are threatened with extinction by humanity's ever-increasing pressure on the land and oceans of the planet, this book sets out to record sources of colorants discovered and used on all the continents from antiquity until the present day. Some 300 plants and 30 animals (marine molluscs and scale insects) are illustrated and discussed by the author, whose passion for natural dyes, with their colors of unequalled richness and subtlety, has taken her across the globe in search of dye sources and dyers. Botanical and zoological details are given for each source and chemical structures for each dye. 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. Other current uses of such colorants, such as in medicine, and as colorants for food and cosmetics, are also noted. Although natural dyes have been largely replaced by synthetic dyes, increasing worldwide awareness of the harmful consequences of the pollution resulting from the production and use of some synthetic colorants has led to a significant revival and renewed interest in natural colorants. As potential renewable resources, natural dyes are an integral part of the major issue of our time: sustainable development. The aim of this book is to provide a scientific background for this important debate."
Natural Dyes offer a variety of hands-on activity for learning or teaching about the science of natural dyes and dyeing at any grade level. This book includes the basics of dyeing with natural dyes, dozens of recipes, an introduction to the physics of light and color, the chemistry of dyes and dyeing and the biology of plant dyes. Each dye is presented in the recipe section along with relevant cultural information and the name or class of the chemical substances in the dye.
This book covers the elements involved in achieving sustainability in the textiles and clothing sector. The chapters covered in different volumes of this series title aim to cover all the distinctive areas earmarked for achieving sustainable development in the textile and clothing industry. This first volume is dedicated to the initial phases of life cycle, i.e. raw materials and manufacturing phases of textile products. This book aims to cover the sustainable raw materials, technologies and processing methods to achieve sustainable textile products. There are plenty of raw materials available today to cater the needs of sustainable textiles and apparels including organic materials, recycled and biodegradable raw materials for textile applications. Similarly, many innovative methods to process textile materials to achieve sustainability in the supply chain along with various processing technologies to manufacture textile products sustainably. This first volume covers the titles of these areas in a comprehensive way.
