Tisse et File

By Aurélia Wolff
with the contribution of Caroline Gomez
Zero Waste Collection
Book in French

It's a bit of chemistry, a bit of cooking, a return to nature and the cycle of the seasons, a taste for the time spent testing colors, mixing, heating, drying, and starting over. It is paying attention to the colors that plants offer us to find them in textile creations with subtle and natural shades.

Aurélia Wolff mixes leaves, roots, bark or flowers to create shades that she explores on different materials: skeins of wool, weaving or knitting yarns, organic or recycled fabrics, linen grown and made in France. A craftswoman above all, she shares in this book the fruit of her experience in natural dyeing and her environmentally friendly approach.

A scholarly and practical guide that mixes recipes and theory, history and inspirations, to explore the rich universe of vegetable dyes, and try in turn to play with the palettes that nature offers us.
