Why Natural Dyes?

 

 The textile industry is considered to be the #1 freshwater polluter on earth.

 

By practicing natural dyeing, we can eliminate harsh chemicals, such as ammonia, chlorine, and heavy metals. This is accomplished by harvesting plants and flowers with natural dyeing properties.
