This has been ecologically dyed using rose madder, sometimes referred to as Rose Madder Genuine, the crushed root of the Common Madder plant [Rubia Tinctorium]. The ancient Egyptians used rose madder to create pinkish rose-colored textile dyes. The Colour Index name used by paint and textile chemists for Rose Madder is Natural Red 9 (NR9).
