Natural Dyeing In Thailand
By Marjo Moeyes
This is a complete account of Thai natural dyeing techniques which have been perfected over the centuries and are still in use today. Marjo Moeyes, an accomplished natural dyer and weaver, has carried out an in-depth study of the dyeing and weaving techniques of the villages of northern and northeastern Thailand. Her practical work with the village craftswomen has given her a good understanding of these age-old methods and procedures. In addition, she tried out all the dyes and processes herself. Her wholly practical approach makes this book a superior guide for the working dyer and more valuable than theoretical books in this field. A comprehensive collection of 135 recipes enables the practicing dyer to experiment with dyes from Thailand at home. The book is lavishly illustrated with over 200 photographs.
