URINE, A TEXTILE DYE

 

Throughout history textiledyes have been explored and challenged in order to achieve the most efficient and beautiful textile colours.

Peeing, Processing, Producing examin a daily production of urine-colours in order to use urine as self-produced textile dyes.

 

 

 

DAILY PRODUCTION

EXPERIMENTS

 

We urinate 3-8 times a day, producing 100 - 750 ml urine a time. Dyeing 75g wool for each urination within a day showed a diverse shade of natural beige tones.

Aiming to reveal urine as a manageable textile paste I experimented with diverse textile paste recipes. Testing on wool, paper, silk and cotton the colours became most clear and sharp on natural cotton.
