dc.description.abstract This was an experiment to test whether cloth dyeing using geothermal steam (already proven in Japan) would be feasible in Hawaii. Results: Using a fabricated steam vat, cotton, silk, and synthetic can be dyed; the resulting material received high grades for steadfastness and permanency under dye testing. Techniques that were successful in Matsukawa, were replicated in Puna. However, attempts to embed leaf patterns on cloth using natural leaves and to extract natural dyes from Hawaiian plants were unsuccessful; the color of natural dyes deteriorated in hours. But chemical dyes gave brilliant hues or shades, in contrast to those in Japan where the steam there gave subdued tones. It is concluded that geothermal dyeing can be a viable cottage industry in Puna, Hawaii. en_US
dc.description.sponsorship DOE Contract Number FG03-85SF15798. "This is a report of work performed for the Community Geothermal Technology Program, a small grant program administered jointly by the Hawai'i Natural Energy Institute and the State of Hawai'i Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism. This project was one of five funded under the second phase of the program, which were awarded in 1988. Funds for this phase were provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, the County of Hawai'i, and donations from private business." en_US
