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.
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 : 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.
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
Describes traditional methods of extracting pigmented materials from trees and plants and provides several dye recipes
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.
New Trends in Natural Dyes for Textiles addresses 20 natural dyes that are finding innovative uses in industry and academia. It comprehensively addresses issues relating to natural dyes and dyeing problems, including efficient extraction and standardization of dyes, dyes structure, dyes characterization and identification. Readers working in the dyeing of textiles will learn how to improve practices to minimize environmental pollution, avoid bad dyeing, and select the best mordants to fix colorant compounds. Key benefits of natural dyes over synthetic are examined in detail, providing readers with an understanding of the importance of natural dyes and the proper methods for applying them. Provides suitable extraction processes for each of the 20 dyes described Offers complete and practical coverage of the whole dyeing process, from source selection to post-treatments Covers practical advice on the application of these dyes to cotton, silk and wool
