■ All-Natural Dyestuffs Used
All our clothes are hand dyed using natural dyes described in detail throughout this web site.
▷For indigo, please visit the “Indigo” page within.
Mordants are color fixatives, often a powdered metal, such as alum or iron, which “fixes” the dye to a material. The type of mordant used determines the final color.
We use mordants that we make ourselves from vinegar, rusted iron nails, and food-grade alum, since some mordants (such as, copper and chrome) can be toxic.
