Natural dyer and colorist

Virginie Lagerbe

Profile

Nature conceals a secret world of colour waiting to be revealed and brought inside.

After studying communications and political science, Virginie worked for many years in tourism development in her native Burgundy. Out of curiosity, she tried her hand at natural dyeing techniques in 2012 and discovered that plant-based dyes are everywhere to be found, hidden in roots, bark, wood, leaves or the flowers of the plants which surround us.

From that moment on, Virginie was driven by the desire to reveal the hidden colours of her environment. She was struck by the beauty of the results and by the fact that natural dyes produce different hues depending on the fibres used. This phenomena reveals unexpected, soothing and timeless shades of colour which when associated provide us with a connection to the natural world. Each plant produces a colour range which interior design can use to best advantage to harmoniously bring the garden into your home.
