An online magazine from Whole Foods Market, Dark Rye brings together pioneers of unconventional ideas to explore the edges of the creative life. Here on the Dark Rye Tumblr, we’ll compile a mixtape of their secrets—a daily how-to and counter-convention dose of sass and entrepreneurialism for your own neighborhood.

We’ll offer perspective on our monthly themes as well as the pioneer’s blueprint: fresh insight and an idea-starter that makes every day feel like a sleeves-rolled-up Saturday morning in spring. Hang out here to stay revived between Dark Rye feasts.

In Living Colour: Dyeing With the Colors of Nature in DARK RYE’s Gather Issue

Here’s a pickle. What’s to be done if you’re an artist and the toxins in oil paint make you sick? Perhaps the answer is in the pickle. And blackberries, too. Wild fennel, artichokes, red cabbage, nettles, avocado pits, rhubarb and fig leaves. Sasha Duerr, author of The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes, wakes up each morning wondering where color exists. Come along as the artist/designer explores nature, the original source of our relationship to color, to rediscover a full palette of lush organic dyes.

Sasha’s color chart will help you to choose a plant color that suits your dye project…
