Ayurvedic herbal dyes - Best solution for delicate skin & latex allergies


Bowl with ayurvedic herbal dyes prepared for dyeing process. Herbs are full of skin soothing and stress relieving properties.

Did you know that there is a difference between natural herbal dyes and  synthetic dyes? 

The biggest difference between  natural herbal dyes  and synthetic dyes is in the way they are made. Synthetic dyes are chemically manufactured whereas natural dyes are purely developed from nature - we use leaves, roots, fruit skin and flowers. 

Therefore, the herbal dyes  although more expensive, are harder to get than chemical dyes, but on the other hand are free from chemicals and carcinogenic properties. 

Generally, that is the main reason why the products with herbal dyes are more expensive than synthetic textiles. 

The plants bypass the entire dye production processes compared to synthetic dyes. Herbal dyes are eco friendly, harmless to the environment and our skin. By supporting products with herbal and natural dyes, you protect the people, environment and water sources in those areas. 

In this section we would like to present you all herbs with all the benefits we are using for our dyeing process.

Natural dyeing is the process where entire fresh herbs, plants and flowers are used to extract the color from them. By the process of extraction we don't get only the color but also the medicinal properties which are present it the plants.
