Textile Tuesday: A Natural Dye Class on the Sustainable Supply Chain

In this natural dye class, we’ll discuss the ability to design and manufacture an organic and naturally dyed clothing collection in the U.S.  Learn how to use sustainable fabrics, natural dyes and textile manufacturing to design and create a sustainable collection.

Kathy Hattori, president of Botanical Colors, will present the options and services available to designers when considering a natural dye project.  We will review resources for fabrics, dyes, indigo dyeing and scalable color and production services from “one of a kind” pieces to runs of hundreds of garments.

We will have an extensive library of naturally dyed fabrics, garments, yarns and other samples on hand and will discuss exciting new sustainability initiatives and trends.

Attendees will leave the seminar with a resource/reference list and a swatch of naturally dyed fabric.

Bring your curiosity and questions!
