Natural Colours & Natural Textiles in Occitania. Inheritage and source of inspiration for design.
GREEN‘ING will attend the symposium organised on September 18th, 2019 in Montpellier.
The history of colors in Occitania, the built heritage and the documents preserved in the departmental archives of Hérault are of first order in the international history of natural colors. The production and use of natural colors have had great economic importance in the South of France, in particular in our territories, and these elements constitute a good basis for the revival of these sectors and the development of bioeconomies.
This event will be an opportunity to create a link between in history, current productions and uses, development potentials, and to bring together passionate regional players.
On this occasion, Patrick Brenac will give a conference entitled : “From dye plants to colored textiles – manufacture and use of natural colors“. An update on plants, techniques and current sectors.
We will be glad to meet you and share this time of color.
