Rood

Working in the realm of dyeing is like doing the delicate

work of an alchemist: liquid dyes, powdered pigments,

water and salts, bring them together and they yield an endless

palette of shades of red: from dark to light, varying in intensity

and saturation. Ultimately, the material and its

original colour determine the outcome.

Red has a beginning, but it seems to have no end: read about the shared history of red and RENS.
