Book summary :
A long time ago, Anna and her family lived in a charming village in Gascony.
Possessing a unique skill, the mother taught the girls how, from a little yellow flower she boiled in a cauldron, she could dye the blue Waide fabrics.
When her husband and sons had to go to war, she showed them how to cover the bodies, to protect them or to heal their wounds.
And, one fine day, a monk landed from a distant monastery in search of the perfect pigment to color the pages of a precious work on the Holy Scriptures.
He discovered the Waide Bleue of Lectoure. The hue became, forever, the tool of the peacemakers ...
Frédérique Nanjod is a painter in Lectoure. The colors Blue and Earth of the tank where the fabrics are dyed give it a great source of inspiration.
To illustrate the magic of Blue, she works with this pigment, from the plant "isatis Tinctoria" also called the Pastel of dyers, wedes or Waide in all its forms, watercolor, pastel and painting on fabrics.
