Dyeing to Learn!

Have you seen any clothes coloured with natural dye?

The farm team has been experimenting with the colour produced from the different parts of locally found plants. We used turmeric rhizomes, bark from the broken bones tree (Oroxylum Indicum), a red root that grows in the mountains which has been used by the Karen people for many years, teak leaves and onion skins!

Check out the results. We think they look great!
