16th Century Leather Dyeing

The range of colours available to the period craftsmen were much more limited than those available today and the dyes were all derived from plants. Modern leather dyes tend to be very opaque, producing very solid colours that can cover up many imperfections in the leather - they are also very resistant to fading. Vegetable dyes are much softer in tone and are more translucent allowing the character of the leather to show through. The colour range is much more limited and they change over time when exposed to sunlight. Dye stuffs and mordants ......................
