[Basic knowledge of Plant Dyeing]

Q.What is Plant dyeing?
> Plant dyeing refers to a dyeing method that uses dyes extracted from natural materials such as fruits, vegetables, and plants, as opposed to dyeing methods that use chemical (synthetic) dyes.
Q.Can I use any plants?
>We think there are some plants that are not suitable for this method, but it is said that basically any plant that can extract color can be used.
However, in general, We think it is better to dye with famous plants because there will be no mistakes and you will be able to dye your hair with beautiful colors.
Q.Can any fiber be dyed?
 >Basically, natural fibers can be dyed. Natural fibers include animal fibers such as silk and wool, plant fibers such as cotton, linen, bamboo, rayon (wood pulp), and paper.
Synthetic fibers such as polyester, acrylic, and nylon cannot be dyed or are difficult to dye.
Q. Is Plant dyeing good for the environment?
>We don't think it's good or bad, but it would be more accurate to say that it has a much lower impact on the environment than using chemical dyes.
Bali does not have a proper sewage treatment system, so sewage flows directly into the river.
Dyes made from natural materials are easier to decompose in water and return to nature than chemical dyes.
The pollution caused to working people is incomparably gentler than chemical dyes.
However, since it is a natural product, it may cause allergies, so if you have such a constitution, it is not suitable for dyers.
Honestly, it is also a burden on the environment as it uses a lot of water.
Although it is easy to return to nature, it is a dye that contains a mordant, so a filtration system is installed in the factory to discharge it.
Q.What are the benefits of Plant dyeing?
 >You can feel the energy of nature.
The depth increases over time and you can enjoy the changes.
It has a unique texture that you can enjoy as you wear it.
Make use of your individuality.
You can enjoy changing your color by redying it.
Her attachment to clothes increases and she begins to treat them with care like living things.
Q. What are the disadvantages of Plant dyeing?
 >Colors fade and discolor faster than chemical dyes.
It takes time and effort.
It is difficult to make the same color and it is easy to fail.
It is very susceptible to dirt and citrus juices, making it difficult to take remedies, so care must be taken when handling it.
If the stain cannot be removed, bleach cannot be used (as bleach will easily remove the color).

Q.Please tell me the process.

 >The process varies depending on the material, but the basic process is

 ~Process of making dye liquid~

1. Collect plants that will become the necessary materials

2. Cut into small pieces

3. Dry

4. Extract the boiled color

5. Aged in barrels

~Dyeing process~

1. Wash the cloth and thread to be dyed with hot water to remove dust and dirt (also helps prevent shrinkage)

2. If you want to add a pattern, tie it with thread at this point.

3. Soak in dye solution

4. Repeat several times

5. Soak in mordant solution

6. Rinse with water several times at the end.

7. Dry in the sun

Q.Do you use color blocking?

 >There is no color fixing process, but we think mordant, which fixes the pigment, is the one.



Q.Is it a traditional Balinese craft?

 >It is considered a traditional craft in Indonesia.

Batik threads are now dyed with chemical dyes, but we hear that in the past they were dyed with plants.

Since they used to dye thread and make cloth by weaving, it is said that they only started dyeing clothes in recent years.

The plants and processes used vary depending on the region, and the colors vary.


[Indigo Sea Story]

Q.What inspired you to make plant-dyed clothes?


>We were shocked by the reality of chemical dyeing factories that we saw while making clothes before we discovered plant dyeing.

They used chemical dyes that were cheap to buy and were easy to dye, and the dyes were dyed with bare hands and then poured directly into the river.

From there, we searched for plant dye factories and found three factories around 2011.

One of them is a factory that we still do business with.

The inspiration was the actual environmental pollution in Bali, but the kind energy of the people working there and the factories there, and the colors dyed by the plants, gradually fascinated us, and it turned into a joy to convey the beauty of it




Q.What should I be careful about when handling?

Any tips for making the color last longer?

 >Do not wash thoroughly lol

Since we can't do that, we reduce the number of times we wash the clothes.

Basically, we don't use detergent, we just wash it with water and then turn it inside out and dry it in the shade.

If you notice a smell, use a small amount of natural detergent or mix a few drops of aroma oil with water and wash.

Store in a dark place away from direct sunlight and fluorescent lights, avoiding moisture.


>Citrus fruits (lemon, lime) will cause the color to fade, so be careful not to get it on your clothes.

When using detergent, avoid getting it directly on clothes.

Treat it with care and kindness like a living thing.


Q.What should I do if it gets dirty?

 >If it gets dirty, immediately wipe it with cold or hot water and wash it.

If it still doesn't come off, wash it with a little soap diluted with water so that the color doesn't come off.

As soon as it gets dirty! That's the deciding factor.


Q.What should I do if the color fades?

>We're sorry. There is no other solution other than re-dying.

We're currently trying out a kit that can be dyed at home. Please wait a little longer.
