Botanical Colors Talk: Scaling Natural Dyes in Apparel

If you are a designer looking to add natural dyes to your collection, join Kathy Hattori of Botanical Colors for a presentation on scaling natural dyes for large as well as small brands.

Kathy will explore the complete range of beautiful textile dyes designers can use on animal or plant fibers as well as ways a brand can grow using non-toxic dyes versus the more common synthetic dyes.

Botanical Colors recently partnered with EILEEN FISHER and Bloomingdale’s to create an Indigo Collection and is currently working with brands large and small to help scale their natural dye needs.

Botanical colors natural dyes are derived from plants, roots, bark and other natural materials that are GOTS (organically) certified and they have partnered with US-based dye houses that provide yarn, garment and short length piece dyeing scalable from small to high volume runs. The colors are earthy, brilliant, and non-toxic and meet standard light and wash tests.

Botanical Colors capabilities include:

Custom natural dye production in scalable volumes and multiple formats including skein, garment and short length fabric dyeing
Custom dye patterning, shibori, tie dye and special effects
Color development and match to your standard
Prototypes and samples
Natural organic, plant-based indigo dipping
