Madder root is one of Europe's oldest dyes, with a long history in Turkish rug making. It grows here in North America, and I have started some in my garden. In 3 years, the roots will be large enough to harvest for this dye. I use rhubarb root as a mordant to give the fabric tannin before the madder is introduced. This helps give the colour a more peach hue, and also helps keep the colour in the fabric.
