This volume covers the plants in South-East Asia that yield dyes and tannins. The former, current and potential future roles in local industries and cultures is discussed. Interest in using vegetable dyes and tannins instead of synthetic materials is growing because of concern for the environment and human health. The plants described include annatto, henna, indigo, myrobalans, black wattle, gambier, bakau, soga, logwood, flame-of-the-forest, dye-yam, gamboge tree and night jasmine.
