Throughout history, people have dyed their textiles using common, locally available materials, producing brilliant and permanent colours from plants, minerals, roots, berries, bark, leaves, seeds, and wood.
Typically, the dye material is put in a pot of water and heated until the dye is extracted. Then the textiles are added to the pot, which is heated and stirred until the colour is transferred. The result is beautiful earthy colours with zero negative footprints.
Until the late 19th century, plant-based dyes such as indigo, kadukkai (myrobalan), and madder were produced commercially and were important trade goods in the economies of Asia and Europe. Today, the textile industry has become one of the most polluting industries in the world - greatly because of chemical dyes and various harmful after-processes.
For us, dyeing process starts from choosing 100% natural and authentic raw materials that are available locally in abundance and ends with re-using the liquid and solid residues for the organic farming purposes.
