Swatch Book Vol. 1

These swatch books were made by our team as a way to archive the colors from our 2021 growing season.

We dyed cotton, linen, wool and silk with each plant we grew and also demonstrated shifts in color through the use of soda ash and iron modifiers.

The swatch books serve as a learning resource. As we continue our annual swatch book process, we can also obtain research as we observe patterns and changes over the years.

Digital versions of the swatches can be found in our Dye Plant Profiles pages.

The completed two editions of the swatchbooks.

Each book is hand-bound with bundle dyed covers.
