About our dyes
Our natural dyes are textile grade products and suitable for use with textiles to dye, paint or print only. We also carry products that are in raw form or are food grade but they are not stored in a food safe facility and therefore should not be used in food products.
Additionally, the dye liquids and extracts are not suitable for food, alcohol or beverage coloring, cosmetics, hair, body paint or tattoos, spray tanning or coloring commercial products such as soaps, candles, medicinal tinctures, solutions or other preparations. We are unable answer questions about these types of applications and cannot be held responsible for their use in this manner. Thank you for understanding.

About Natural Dyes
The way that conventional color is applied to clothes is broken. “Wet processing” as industrial dyeing is called, is one of the top polluters in the world, consuming enormous amounts of energy, water and petrochemical based colorants.
We’re here to provide a solution. Botanical Colors supplies artisans and industry with what they need to dye textiles in a way that uses less water, is non-toxic and biodegradable and draws its incomparable color palette from humble plants and natural sources. All colors are sustainably derived, many from agricultural and food waste products.
Along with our beautiful natural dyes, we fully support the reshoring movement to bring textile jobs back to the U.S. The wonderful thing about working with U.S. manufacturing is American know-how, scalability from sample runs through large volume production, quick turnarounds and American jobs.
Our studios are in Seattle, Washington where we offer production dyeing and do fulfillment. We also partner with other dye studios worldwide offering consulting.
