By Knipidee

Knipidee inherits a cultural heritage of natural dyeing in the ways of a modern society. Therefore we have been working for several years on finding methods of natural dyeing all around the world which could reproduce traditional dyeing.

We use natural dyestuff extracted from plants and animals like trees, flowers, worms, and etc. We’ve been developing optimum recipe to minimize the consumption of chemicals and energy. The colors of natural dyeing look like nature, so they are very beautiful and comfortable.

Natural Dyes Colors

Our dyes are won from exclusively natural materials including Natural Indigo, Gallnuts, Madder Root, Lac, Pomegranates, Himalayan Rhubarb, Myrobalan and Catechu. Nature’s delicate color shades add further elegance to any piece of clothing, and are well-suited to highly fashionable lines.

Natural Dyeing Color Swatches

Nature’s attractive color shades add further elegance to any piece of clothing. Colors of synthetic dyeing make our eyes tired, but colors of natural dyeing are comfortable even long stare.

A chemical dye, as a substance of the refined dye, or as a mixture, it can make sharp, intense colors, and maintain the colors as well.

• On the other hand, the majority of the natural dyes contain various components because this is natural material. Therefore it is difficult to maintain a vivid and leveling color. And most are represented by ‘earthy color tone‘. (But, Indigo and gardenia are exceptional, they can be relatively bright colors.)

• The ingredients of the natural dyes have effects on the plantations and the climates. This means that even if the dye stuff are the same, the color differences can occur.

Natural Dyeing Fabrics

Not all fabrics are fitt to be dyed with natural materials. The best ones to use are those made from natural materials themselves like: Cotton, silk, wool and linen will take the dye the best. Synthetic blends will take some dye, but will usually be lighter in color.Therefore we only use the best fabric to dye naturally.

Natural Dyeing Materials

The same goes for the materials, natural materials will produce a dye, but some produce colors that are nothing like the original plant it came from.

The dye stuff that is used in dye comes from: collections from the nature, cultivation from the farms, or the leftover skins of the fruits.

• The dyeing materials are mostly vegetable matters, and they form from subtropical regions, or temperate territory.
• The parts that are used for dyeing are, stems, roots, leaves, and the skins of fruits.
