New Dyes from the Plants of Jordan

With support from UNESCO and research from the Jordanian Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature we have located and harvested wild madder root near Dana Village in Jordan. The is exciting news and we have been very happy dyeing with the roots. So far we have found many lovely pinks on cottons and bright orange on wool. We are still working to achieve the difficult pure red.
