About the AuthorCatherine Legrand is the proprietor of an ethnic cloth boutique in Paris's Marais district.
Author 1Catherine Legrand
Book DescriptionGloriously pieced together, much like the fine garments it portrays, this colourful volume takes the reader on an international tour of indigo-coloured textiles, presenting a huge swathe of remarkable clothing, people and fabric. Catherine Legrand, who has spent over twenty years travelling and researching the subject, has a deep knowledge of the ancient techniques, patterns and clothing traditions that characterize ethnic textile design, knowledge that she deploys to great effect in seven chapters exploring the production of Indigo textiles throughout America, China, India, Africa, Central Asia, Japan and Laos/Vietnam, and the men and women behind them. This profusely illustrated photographic survey features more than 500 photographs, faithfully laid out to reproduce Catherine's actual travel notebooks, and is completed by specially commissioned drawings that provide close-ups on patterns and clothes.

Editorial Review“[Legrand] uses her book to tell the story of our emotional attachment to garments and deep connection to color and craft.” (Home Design with Kevin Sharkey, marthastewart.com) “Legrand . . . writes with enthusiasm about the history of this shade and its evolution.” (Women's Wear Daily) “A sumptuous new book.” (House Beautiful) “Diverse images of people at work convey the enormous range of conditions in which indigo dyeing takes place.” (Surface Design Journal) “A visual feast of 550 images offers textile details, proud locals wearing their garments, and process shots illustrating how the dyeing is done.” (Shuttle, Spindle & Dyepot) “This sumptuous book can be appreciated on all levels: a history of the production and trade of dyes and textiles; an anthropology of textile production; and a stunning visual catalog of the international production of cloth colored with the blue dye, indigotin.” (The Art Blog)
