FIBERS AND SUPPORTS
If we return into times when the first recipes of natural dyes had been redacted, the choice of textile support was not relevant because they were all 100% natural from organic farming without genetic or chemical manipulations.
Today, however, we do not have any information about the real origins of a piece of textile we buy in a shop. The laws of labeling textile do not force manufacturers to give us more information than the composition of the fabrics.
There are so many variations between natural or synthetic compositions, threads made from bamboo, wood, leaves through chemical processes, cottons or linen cultivated from genetically modified seeds that the labyrinth in which we are walking, seriously hampers the task of artisan dyeing.
