The Social History of Colour in Textiles: 19th to 21st Centurt
By the 19th century the study of chemistry was beginning but it was still thought that new colours would come from natural sources, of all types and from around the world. But all that was to change when an eighteen year old student of the Royal College of Chemistry serendipitously discovered the first fully synthetic colour. This led to a science race and the development of thousands of new colours. This lecture explores how colour was a global industry by the 19th century, the birth of the new power colours and how dyeing has changed to meet the needs of fashion.
