Indigo : Périple bleu d'une créatrice textile
By Catherine Legrand
Book in French
Catherine Legrand spent more than two years traveling the world to produce this exceptional work on how Indigo is grown and used in the world today.
She brought back an iconography and testimonies that make this beautiful book a unique reference on this subject.
In 1963, Catherine Legrand participated in the founding of the Théâtre du Soleil as a graphic designer. A layout artist in New York and Paris from 1968 to 1974, she then became an independent textile designer. As a fashion designer, she created the brand À La Bonne Renommée and opened a boutique where her creations based on ethnic themes are displayed. During her many "textile travels", she passionately collected fabrics, costumes, ornaments and photos, which are gathered in this book.
