SOOT: Textile colorant + Capturing memory

Project Introduction:

Soot is a deep black powdery or flaky substance consisting largely of amorphous carbon, produced by the incomplete burning of organic matter. In this era of industrialization and

mechanization soot is a very common air pollutant. After analyzing the properties of soot, the aim was to create a textile colorant out of this waste. This technique could help us to look at colorants with a new perspective of converting waste into a useful resource as well as a development of a new texture.
