Khairul Anuar, Nurul Athirah (2022) Purple streaks / Nurul Athirah Binti Khairul Anuar. In: dyeco - Textile Eco Exploration of Natural Dyes. College of Creative Arts, p. 26. ISBN 9786299847014


A collection of textile artwork inspired by the linear quality of red cabbage, which is a purple-leaved variety of the Brassica Oleracea Capitata plant group. Also known as blaukraut, the extract of red cabbage is made into natural dye as alternative colouring for textiles. Red cabbage contains special pigment molecules called flavins, which are part of the anthocyanin family. The materials used in this series of works are 100% natural, with combination of using different types of threads and fabrics in a multi- textile technique application to show the versatility in eco textiles. The designs are focused on the variation of line quality to create texture and a sense of movement. Embroidery technique is applied to visualize linear motifs as part of the textile design element.
