European Blue: Woad and Bleu de Lectoure

by - Thursday, May 20, 2010

Our latest podcast just went up.

Presentation, Question and Answer
Denise Lambert

In this lecture Denise Lambert will guide the audience through the history of this colourant and relate how a simple curiosity led to the rediscovery of ancient extraction techniques. The popularity of the colour motivated Denise and Henri Lambert to found their company Bleu de Lectoure. Through collaboration and enterprise the Lamberts have been able to incorporate natural woad into everything from traditional art supplies and textiles to industrial colourants for plastics, cosmetics, and car paints.
