Natural Dyeing with Plant & Mineral Matter: Cotton, Silk, Wool, & Leather

Natural Dyeing with Plant & Mineral Matter: Cotton, Silk, Wool, & Leather


The art of dyeing in Nepal has an ancient past. Historic evidence based on a study of paintings and religious and cultural records indicates that natural dye-stuffs were used not only for the colouring of textiles and yarn for clothing, but also for dyeing yarn used in making tapestries. The collections of costumes, paintings, and tapestries that have been preserved in the stores of temples and monasteries in Nepal bear evidence to this.
