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.
