The Dyeing Process
DESIZING The washing of processed greige cloth starts with removing sizing, gums and oils used in the course of weaving by washing with natural mineral-rich water and sea salts.
SCOURING Scouring is a vital part of the process in order to prepare the fabric for even and consistent dyeing. We use Soda Ash in boiling water where fabric is treated for several hours before moving to the next process.
MORDANTING To make the colours bright and fast, natural mordants such as myrobalan, rhubarb leaves, oils, minerals, alum, iron vat etc are used. We do not use heavy metal mordants like copper, chrome, zinc, tin etc.
DYEING Herbal dyes are almost solely plant-based, using components such as flowers, roots, leaves, seeds, peels, etc. We try our best to use only that part of the plant which is considered a waste or is growing wild and organic in nature and has medicinal properties, such as the peels of pomegranate, onions and myraballam.
FINISHING In herbal dyeing, finishing is done by sprinkling pure water on the cloth and then stretching under pressure, using hand rolls, aloe vera, castor oil etc.
RECYCLING Plant Solid and liquid waste is separated through the process of filtration and used for farming purposes as manure and for watering the fields. The discharged water or the solid waste does not contain any harmful chemicals.
