We think of Eupatorium dye as a happy accident. In the Tarai plains, basunti (eupatorium) is infamous for its highly invasive nature. It takes over entire forests, wiping out any other plant species in its way. And yet, it produces the most breathtaking shades.
This is what makes Eupatorium dye twice as sustainable as other natural dyes. Uprooting Eupatorium allows for a diversified forest while also giving you plant-based colours for the objects you surround yourself with.
the shades it holds
Our Eupatorium dye can give you a palette of earthy colours. You can get bright yellows and greens or duller browns. It all depends on the mordants you use to alter pH values.
For instance, dyeing with iron will produce mossy greens while overdyeing with Indigo will give you a range of bluish greens and yellows. Get your Eupatorium powder today and let’s get you started!
from one dyer to another
Dyeing with natural colours involves letting nature take its course. The shades you get will depend on the quantity of dye, water’s composition, dyebath’s pH, mordants, type of fabric, weather conditions and your own skill. This means it’ll take some time and a lot of practice before you can create the exact colours you were hoping for.
That’s why we urge you to enjoy the process of colouring using pieces from this Earth instead of worrying about the final product. Savour the moment you hold the fabric that you coloured and all the tiny imperfections it holds.
