The key characteristics of natural colors are that they are not petroleum derivatives, do not pollute the environment and do not harm our skin. In addition, they bring a new dimension of color depth and intensity, as they are obtained from natural pigments and are therefore multi-pigmented, whereby it is impossible to describe the shade with just one color.
So what is dyeing with natural dyes and how does it work? In order for the colors to last, it is very important to choose and pre-prepare the fabric, whereby only natural materials can be dyed with natural colors. The material can be prepared for dyeing using various techniques (at least 8 hours and over 6 steps). This is followed by the preparation of dyes and color baths. Colors can be extracted from flowers, wood, leaves, kitchen scraps, etc. Then the painting begins. Romana says: “natural dyeing is a slow and nature-related process that involves a lot of picking, soaking, wringing, mixing, twisting, rinsing and manual work in general”.
