A film series and discussion forum dedicated to the science and practice of natural dyes and pigments using sustainable methods.

DVD 2 “Colors of Americas” now being filmed in Oaxaca, MX

The second film in our NDW series, “Colors of Americas: cochineal, indigo, yellows on animal fibers” [ed. note: and black] on animal fibers” (title tbd) is currently being filmed with Michel Garcia in Oaxaca, Mexico. Read more about the film here in About the Films

Update: title (tbc) to include “….yellows and black”; dvd will also cover black dye, a color that is difficult to dye safely (common mordant is iron, which is corrosive to fiber)
