Red is worn by people who want to look smart and be noticed. You have lots of energy, are practical and ambitious with a sense of fun – an unashamed extrovert. Be careful though, you may be a little too dominant and appear aggressive.
As the colour of blood, red is symbolic of both life and death.
Dr Muriel Rigout report on this recent SDC North of England region event, which focused on ZDHC.
If ZDHC sounds to you like a random combination of letters probably arisen from the idle or accidental depression of keys on the author’s keyboard, then do read on.
Indeed, the combination ZDHC is not appearing on this blog due to sloppy editing, but is in fact an acronym that you soon will not be able to avoid if you intend to live a normal life in the field of coloration.
The letters ZDHC stand for Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals, and they are used to refer to the programme formed by brand members and retailers in association with other stakeholders (eg dyestuff and chemical auxiliary suppliers) to ‘catalyse positive change in the discharge of hazardous chemicals across the product life cycle’.

Dyeing and colour are subjects that lie in the Bermuda-like triangle with the academic/scientific, industrial/technical, and creative/artistic at the corners. (Outside the triangle is a vast sea of “how hard can dyeing be, anyway?” but we won’t go there!)
