Our New Colour Palette

We have been busy expanding our colour palette using only natural plant and mineral dyes. We have added indigo blue to our colours and have started growing our own at our test farm. Madder root which produces reds, oranges and pinks grows wild here in Jordan. Yellows are easy to find. Our favourites come from pomegranate rind, olive leaves, camomile flowers and ochre earth. And blacks are made by adding iron to pomegranate, tea or eucalyptus bark.

Natural dyes produce different colours on wool or cotton. 

Our scrap pile of cotton fabric is rich in possibilities now.
