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 extremely safe to use and extracted in the best eco friendly manner in order to retain their efficacy. The shades produced are rich, warm, and soothing. Unlike synthetic dyes, these natural vegetable dyes are non-polluting, and do not cause any allergic reactions.
