This is a really beautiful book, full of lovely photographs, which looks at sustainable ways to use certain crops, starting with growing them from seed, cooking and eating them and ending with using them to produce dyes for fabric. This is then made into a selection of clothing.
The five crops are onion, nettle, rhubarb, blackberry and red cabbage. Each chapter focuses on one crop from sowing, cultivating and harvesting, to several delicious recipes, to notes on dying with examples of the range of colours that can be achieved.
The garment patterns are included in a folder within the book and are for a dress, a duster jacket, a bolero, a shirt (dress) and a pair of shorts.
If you are interested in slow fashion, growing your own food, vegan recipes and producing less waste this is the book for you.
