With this beginner-friendly guide, "crafting with dye doesn't have to be messy or impossible to conquer"—but it "might turn into an all-consuming passion" (Booklist, starred review).

This modern introduction to indigo and fiber-reactive dye offers everything you need know to create stylish, richly colored and patterned pieces. Natural materials and classic techniques like shibori make these projects beautiful and accessible, even for the beginner.

Items such as an elegant robe, a duvet cover set, drum lampshades, and even a hammock will invite a new generation of design lovers and style mavens to fall in love with this traditional, magical, and surprisingly straightforward process.

Anna Joyce is the perfect instructor to teach the skills needed to create more than twenty-five masterpieces for the home and wardrobe that readers will want to wear, live with, and most importantly, make by hand.


“Thanks to Joyce, crafting with dye doesn’t have to be messy or impossible to conquer. Joyce caters to beginners, with most designs scaled at a difficulty level of one or two (out of four) and incorporates lots of valuable notes and color photographs. Just be careful: an occasional hobby might turn into an all-consuming passion.”
Booklist, Starred Review

“Nothing adds movement, delicious irregularity, and personality to textiles the way hand-dyeing can, and Joyce’s new tome will have you moved to the dyeing bucket in minutes. With gorgeous photography, a clear vision, and a delicate sensibility, this book will not only be inspiring to DIYers and crafters but also to designers, stylists, and anyone who loves color and pattern.”
designer, founder of Jungalow, and author of The New Bohemians, Justina Blakeney
