I love working with natural dyes – keeping an ancient tradition – exploring natural colour and being close to nature.
Many people don’t ever consider that mass produced clothing dyed with synthetic dyes are dangerous for us and our environment. These chemicals pollute the air and waterways, they can irritate consumers skin – causing allergies and eczema.
We can benefit from the healing properties of many plants in different ways – from herbal teas, culinary herbs and infusions and also by transferring plant properties onto our fabric.
Making your own natural dyes at home can be done easily – it is so fascinating!
If you are not able to grow your own plants for dyeing – below are a selection of natural dyes which will provide you with an amazing range of fantastic colours! All the instructions can be found on our HOW TO pages in the main menu above. Just scroll down the menu to find your selected dye.
