Organic Dyeing

Hello – great website!!
I had a question… Is it possible to dye an organic cotton fabric with high quality bright vegetable based ( or otherwise natural) dyes? Do you have any source for that? I am trying to make a sincere effort at being green. Need a little help! Any info would be appreciated!
Thanks very much!

Dear Margaret,
It is possible to dye this fabric with good results. I don’t have any experience with the natural dyes, but I do know that some of them are toxic in spite of themselves. All the info that you need is available at www.dharmatrading.com. They carry the fabric, the natural dyes, the reactive dyes (the ones I personally use), and the books on this matter. Get a copy of their paper catalog and peruse it carefully.
have fun,
