The dyes used to colour our yarn have all been derived from various plants, vegetables and fruits: pomegranate; marigold; Indian madder, among others. These dyes are non-toxic and harmless for your skin. We source our dyestuff from Sam Vegetable Colours Pvt. Ltd., a company in Moradabad, India, who have been making natural dyestuff since 1994.
The dyestuff are GOTS certified (GOTS-C 845056-01.2016).
Using these organic dyestuff, we dye yarn in small batches in our own facility - except indigo, because it is notoriously difficult to get a deep shade with organic indigo on Eri silk.For indigo and black, we have found a partner in BioDye India Pvt. Ltd., an amazing company in Konkan region in western India.
