A box arrived at my post office and opened to reveal a treasure: natural colour dyes. There is Indigo, Purple blue, Rose Fuschia, Anise and Jujube. Colour is my weakness and dyes are my dream, as many as you know. I have a collection of unknown natural dyes and mordants and even though I do not know how to use them, I love soaking in their colours. Now, thanks to my very dear friend Daniela, I have a collection of ‘named’ dyes and have decided to share some of the stories of the colours with you over the next week.
