Lignin as colorant
Dialogue between biocolour and textiles
Lignin is one of the three main components of wood. The project explores could the deep brown color of lignin be used in the textile industry of tomorrow? In the project Johansson studied the topic by using a limited color palette based on lignin and some other natural dyes to create woven and printed textiles. In addition to the beautiful range from light beige to darker brown, these biocolourants have good washing and rubbing fastness. The study is part of the Biocolour research project.
