An immersive visual experience and an inspiring travelogue of personal stories and practical information from artists who are leaving their mark on the world. True Colors is about artists who create color from natural materials and about the historical importance and environmental sustainability of this practice. All new content in this revised edition features Heartwear, a collaborative of artists and fashion designers who have created and supported indigo-dyeing projects from Benin to Morocco to India and beyond. True Colors features deep conversations with twenty-eight artisans from every part of the globe who reveal their wisdom, traditions, and know-how - and suggest that we ignore what they know at our peril. Traditional approaches to making colour offer sustainable options to a fashion system badly in need of them and memorable cultural narratives to a world hungry for beauty and spirituality.
