Subject: Drosera and Indian Dyes

I'm taking a class in ethnobotany called Edible, Medicinal, and
Poisenous plants and in the book it states that Drosera sps. - Sundew
can be used as a permanent red dye for clothing. Does anyone have any
further information on this? Are there any other carnivorous plants that
feature dye properties?
