Application of Dyestuffs to Textiles, Paper, Leather, and other Materials

Abstract

THE author introduces his subject with “Craft Dyeing,” followed by a short history of dyeing. In discussing tie-dyeing (knot-dyeing), batik and stencil work—some of the earliest methods of producing coloured patterns on fabrics—he makes the rather interesting suggestion that craft dyeing should be encouraged, as the field for it in America is a broad one, because in it “we have the possibility of reaching into realms of colour art that is not present in ordinary trade dyeing.” As in the author's former work, “The Laboratory Manual of Dyeing and Textile Chemistry,” each chapter is followed by instructions for carrying out experiments relating to the processes described. These should be of considerable assistance to students in technical colleges.
