About this deal

A miniature circular economy highlights the journey from seed to crop, from harvest to plant-based cooking, food waste to DIY natural dyeing and contemporary dressmaking. Inhaltlich hat mir das Buch so gut gefallen, dass ich es mir nach der Kindle-Version noch in Buchform bestellt habe. With respect to dyeing, cabbage is not an ideal dye plant as it creates temporary but beautiful colors.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The reason recipes are included in the book is to show people a tentative spectrum of colors they can achieve.If you went through the journey of making the garment, you would never throw it – you would mend it, pass it along to family and friends, it becomes a part of you and you become a part of it. A notably beautiful thread bound book with growing tips, recipes, dyeing charts and sewing instructions to encourage a truly sustainable way of life. You can tell Grow, Cook, Dye and Wear has been created by a prize winning fashion designer because the presentation throughout is incredibly impressive and truly testament to Bella Gonshorovitz’s creative skills.

The first step is hunting, growing or foraging for produce, then there’s cooking with five vegan or plant-based recipes. For example, madder – it can be harvested only three to five years after growing and the roots are used to obtain the dye. This beautifully produced book would make a wonderful gift for anyone interested in horticulture, fashion or cooking. If the initial age verification is unsuccessful, we will contact you asking you to provide further information to prove that you are aged 18 or over. I also found some extremely useful tips and clear explanations even as someone who is not very familiar with many of the concepts or techniques in the book.Obviously to grow the fiber and dye it, requires a level of ambition that would be quite hard to promote as a mainstream experience. To make the book as accessible as possible, Bella focuses on five crops that can either be foraged or easily grown in allotments, gardens, or pots; blackberry, nettle, onion, red cabbage, and rhubarb. There are interesting recipes and the book is written in a way that is nice to read and welcoming to beginners.

Created in response to the twin dilemmas of food waste and fast fashion, the book is designed to teach readers how to grow their own food and how to get the most out of everything they grow. She has a clear, engaging vision of how we can live sustainably and shares this with warmth rather than worthiness. Extracting from her own experience as a fashion designer and plant grower, Bella inspires a more sustainable lifestyle through a journey from seed to crop, from harvest to plant-based cooking and utilising food waste to create fabric dye for contemporary dressmaking.The aim here isn’t for readers to grow all of their vegetables, hand make all clothes, or even convert to a strict vegan diet.
