Travels the world to document the growing, harvesting, extraction and use of natural dyes. From the Bogolanfini mudprinting of Mali to the madder-root of Turkey, from cochineal insects to the rare shellfish purple, this documentary traces the use of natural dyes from the traditional techniques used in many cultures to current efforts to adopt environmentally sound and economically viable dyeing methods.
