But what's mordant, you say? What's Woad? Well, here's a quick guide:
Woad: Woad is a favored plant of dyers, a deep blue-violet flower that creates dyes with staying power all on their own. This makes color accessible to even lower classes.
Mordant: Mordant is an additive that increases the staying power of dyes, preventing the color from fading.
Long VS Short Dye: The longer a fabric is dyed, the bolder the color will be. However, this also makes it more likely the fabric will begin to rot, and so the process is very precise and tedious to prevent this outcome.
