Here's something I've been pondering for a while now.
Does anyone know where Moonshade gets the dye for the purple she seems to like so much? The colour sure looks familiar; a special agreement with Pike that she gets to use all the bad dreamberries?

Wikipedia says "Vegetal-tanned hide is not very flexible and is used for luggage, furniture, footwear, belts, and other clothing accessories." I guess Moonshade uses either brains or urine.

"That was a great hunt! Now let's line up and help Moonshade with the tanning process... "

In Dreamtime Moonshade has a sort of basin she stores the hides in. Maybe every time Someone needs to "go" - and is near the basin - he or she just goes there.
Funnily enough, the only time we've ever seen that rather... unpleasant... part of the process it was as a punishment.

All the 5 fingered paw-flowers that Skywise and Cutter went through to try to find a 4 fingered one? There was a enough....

I've been reading this topic with interest but had nothing to contribute until now. The mention of dreamberries made me think - the World of Two Moons is a fantasy world, with plants like dreamberries, whistling leaves, strangleweed... and five-fingered paw-flowers. Trinket So I suppose it would be possible for a variety of plants to exist that give vibrant dyes and help tan soft leathers.

(I also suspect there is some kind of contraceptive plant in existence, considering the size of the human families.)

Vegetable dyes tend to be fugitive. Maybe Moonshade has an additional formula to keep multicolor clothes (Nightfall's orange and green, for example) from running together.

I always thought that was separate pieces of leather sewn together...

I think Trollbabe meant that the colors would run together when the clothes are washed... or get wet otherwise...

Which brings to my mind that I don't recall any scene of elves washing their clothes... maybe they never do! Pike Rolling

Vurdah was washing Skywise's clothes in Heart's Ways, but of course that could've been the first time they ever got washed.

Right. I wasn't paying attention. Zhantee

I thought it was interesting that Skywise had bright red underpants in that story. One of the advantages of discovering the Sun Village might have been moth-fabric underwear.

Maybe the Trolls, and the Troll caverns, yield some minerals that produce leather dyes less fugitive than vegetable colors like berry juice.

Let's be honest. Skywise was wearing a red speedo.

Dunno, dont really care... dont usually check guys out, especially when there are more shapely creatures around... (ducks for cover).

Did this imply they had soap or scented something or other? Generally "doggy rolled in something" type smells dont go away with just water. Not easily, at least.

They may have had plants containing saponins, the deodorant mineral potassium aluminum sulfate, or possibly distilled vinegar. If the Sun Folk had vinegar, they would have also had alcohol. I'm not sure they did until they heard of dreamberry wine.

The Trolls had "cleanstone", which I took to mean pulverized lime, another product to which the Sun Folk might have had access.
