In stock


From the publisher:

After working on seaweed research for more than 18 months, Nienke Hoogvliet has collected all her findings in a book. During her quest to use seaweed to create a more sustainable textile industry, she was charmed by the beauty of seaweed as well as its great qualities. In this book she explains the differences between types of seaweed—illustrated with beautiful photos—and shows how it can be used in textiles. She hopes to inspire others to believe in this material that has so much potential.

This book focuses on the various seaweed research, seaweed varieties and the colors they yield on different fibers. It has some general process information and Nienke hopes that it will inspire your own experiments and discoveries.
