A really lovely post about color & dye on Coutorture. I feel like I often just skim through this site (too much "what's hot!" stuff usually), but when there's something good.....

This post was written by Entwinements and she mention a couple of good books: Colors: The Story of Dyes and Pigments and Prehistoric Textiles. First off, Prehistoric Textiles looks amazing! She has also turned me on to the Dyers List which looks like it will be a fabulous resource. And finally, I found her own blog, Entwinements, where you can see her beautiful Shibori work, one of which is the picture here. I also discovered her name is Karen K. Brito.
