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 offer a solution. Botanical Colors supplies artisans and industry with the materials and know-how to dye textiles in a way that uses less water, is non-toxic and biodegradeable 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.
We offer guidance, support and consulting for emerging designers, brands and artisans. Send an email to Amy at [email protected] to get the conversation going and start living your dream of using beautiful, sustainable and ethically produced fashions, yarns and fabrics.
