Natural vegetable dyes are created from different parts of various plants such as roots, bark, leaves, berries or flowers, and are sustainably made from vegetable waste so that the living plant itself is not damaged. The dyes are extracted in the best eco friendly manner in order to retain their efficacy. The shades produced are rich, warm, and soothing. Unlike many synthetic dyes, these Natural Vegetable Dyes are non-polluting and promote a healthy & happy living environment.
