This organic natural dye garden kit contains everything you need to start growing a thriving dye garden; ensuring a fresh supply of natural plant colours for your dye pot throughout the growing season.
Natural dyes are much safer and kinder to the environment than harsh, polluting chemical dyes, and they help demonstrate an alternative to fast fashion. Not only does growing and creating your own natural dyes give you a deeper connection with the natural world, they also help us develop a better understanding of the true value of the clothes we wear. Being able to transform the plant dyes that you have grown into beautiful non-toxic colours, then transfer them onto naturally-dyed textiles which are turned into character-filled pieces of clothing or homewares, is a truly rewarding experience - one that more people should have the confidence to try.
