a new book from the botanical alchemist...


I was putting together a post on textiles at my other blog and of course had to include something from  the fabulously clever Botanical alchemist India Flint (from South Australia)  .... so popped over to her wonderful blog and found something definitely share-worthy to tell you about!


INdia Flint - Eco colour




Read this post from the fabulous India on her writing and books: felt like telling stories at her excellent blog Not all those who wander are lost .

I cant wait to see India's second book...



SECOND SKIN by India Flint -click on title 

Almost from the moment of our birth, clothing acts as our second skin, yet we rarely consider where our clothes have come from and the effects they might have on the environment and ourselves. This heartfelt, practical and topical book is about easily achievable ways in which we can care for our planet by living simpler lives and using fewer resources, specifically those to do with cloth and clothing. Beautifully photographed and illustrated by the author, it presents information and inspiration on selecting, acquiring, wearing, caring for, making and repurposing textiles and clothing.
I think you'd best go see India's blog to find out if the book is in the stores quite yet... or very soon.

Cant wait to see this book.. know it will be fabulous!
