description
Karin Altmann and Manuel Wandl initiated an archive of plant dyes as part of a knowledge base of textile material culture that will contribute to future activities and agendas of the Nubuke Centre for Textiles and Clay in Wa thus supporting the local communities and improving their working and living conditions. In order to secure, build on and disseminate the indigenous knowledge and skills, the Angewandte team is creating a local analogue archive, a digital archive, a website and didactic material.
