Dyes of the Américas Sampler Kit


In stock


Many of the most storied and legendary dyes are native to the Americas and were a prized supply and source for the dye houses of Europe. We’ve created our Dyes of the Américas sampler kit to showcase these beautiful colors. Each dyestuff is native to North, South or Central America and all are used in textile arts today. Indigenous civilizations used many of these dyes long before European conquest.

This updated kit contains sample sizes of logwood, cochineal, osage, pericón, and coreopsis along with a brief description of each dyestuff and its origin. The color yield from these dyes are:

  • logwood – purple
  • cochineal – pink/red
  • pericón – gold
  • coreopsis – orange
  • osage – bright yellow

We’ve also included five mordanted cotton bandanas so you can create samples, eco-print, or experiment as you please. We dyed five bandanas with the ingredients in the kit, with enough left over to eco-print another bandana.

Our dye baths have plenty of color left in them to dye other items or turn into lake pigments for future ink or watercolor use.

We cannot ship this kit outside of the US and Canada due to customs regulations about the import of flowers and plant matter. Thank you for understanding.
