History of natural dyes is very old, when there were no use of chemical dyes in practice, because human being was very close to nature and dependent on natural resources only. After industrial revolution and advent of synthetic dyes use of natural dyes started falling. Reasons behind use of chemical dye was easy to use and bright colors.
Today when world is facing a problem of scarcity of water resources, contamination of existing water resources. In this problem situation use of chemical dyes contributing the most. It is not only contaminating the water resources but also hazardous for human skin and health. To address the solution to the problem we need to go back to the nature.
But very few people were engaged and still practicing the art of natural dyeing and continuing the tradition. Continuing the traditional art of natural dyeing one of the master dyer and designer from Australia India Flint innovated a craft of “Eco-dyeing” and “Eco Printing” using 100% natural dye ingredients to beautify fabric.
EcoFab has developed its own eco-dyeing and eco-printing process.
