The process of natural dyeing involves pigments derived from natural sources instead of being designed with chemicals. It is sustainable and a super-eco-friendly alternative to synthetic dyes. However, some consumers continue to have misconceptions about natural dyes and are hesitant to adopt a conscious way of living. Come, let’s debunk these illusions:
NATURAL DYES HAVE FEW COLOUR OPTIONS
By mixing natural colourants, a spectrum of colours can be generated. A minor modification in the dyeing process or using multiple mordants with the same dye can change the colour or produce a new range of colours. Browse our site to discover a wide array of sustainable colour options for home textile goods like madder red, pebble grey, indigo blue, and much more.
NATURAL DYES HAVE LOW COLOUR FASTNESS
Natural dyes own a reputation for having low photostability. It occurs due to their molecular compositions, which prevent them from having a strong affinity for protein or cellulose substrates without applying a mordant. However, one must not generalize. Certain organic dye-mordant systems deliver good photostability.
NATURAL DYES ARE NOT ECO-FRIENDLY
Natural dyes do not harm the environment as much as synthetic dyes because they are derived from natural sources and can be easily disposed of without polluting the environment.
NATURAL DYES ARE HARMFUL
Natural dyes are not only safe for the environment but for the consumers as well. They lack the carcinogenic substances that are present in many synthetic dyes, making them non-toxic and non-allergenic for consumers’ skin and health.
NATURAL DYES ARE COSTLY
Yes, natural dying textile decor can cost you a little more when compared to synthetic-dyed products. However, you may reuse them as much as you like, which makes them cost-effective. Additionally, Roots offers a reasonable solution, so you need not worry about your pocket!
