Why Use Plant-Based Colors?
Combining natural fibers and botanical dyes to facilitate healing is a practice found in many ancient cultures.
These botanical fibers and dyes act as a medicinal delivery system from the material to your skin. One of the oldest examples comes from the Indian tradition of Ayurveda. Now referred to as “Ayurvastra”, or “healing cloth”, this practice involves combining natural fibers and medicinal plants to dye clothing, bedding, and anything else that would come in contact with the body to promote healing. Two clinical studies proving the efficacy of this practice were conducted in India: One by the Kerala Ministry of Health and the other one by the Pharmacology department of the Government Ayurveda College.

When we are unable to harvest our own colors due to volume, we source our dyes from a company that has created fully GOTS certified organic plant-based dyes, which are the most earth-friendly on the market with full traceability from the plants to the final colors.
The history of color medicine dates back to 2000 BC and is as old as that of any other medicine. It was practiced in ancient Egypt, Greece, China and India and was applied via stones, dyes, ointments, and garments among other things.
From a scientific perspective, colors create vibrations through the electromagnetic spectrum and affect both the physical and etheric bodies. These colors generate electrical impulses and magnetic currents, or fields of energy that are prime activators of the biochemical and hormonal processes in the human body. This means that colors derived from nature are able to correct imbalances within the physical body.
