Our story


Established our company with a mission to bring back the old traditional natural dyes.


In the beginning, we started with conventional raw materials such as flowers, root bark, etc. were used to produce natural dyes powders. Using the method our ancestors have used for over a millennium.


It was the time we were working to establish ourselves in the marketplace, And in 2016, we launched our "Dye It Yourself" workshop which kindle a passion for natural dyes and the dying process into the people.

Our story


We were diligently working to make ourselves better. But it was in 2018, we moved on to dye extracts and started researching newer sustainable sources, including bacteria.


These three years we laboured to improve our products to make them compatible with the pre-existed dyeing machineries.


During this time, we were featured in "Fashion for Good" for their 2022 Asia Innovation Programme, and our R&D programme is being incubated at the University of Delhi. We are a government recognized tax free startup, working with industry leaders, and are amongst the largest suppliers of natural dyes for industrial application to sustainable textile brands. We can proudly say, we are all primed to disrupt the dye market!

why we do

For fashion brands, embracing natural dyes is no longer optional but essential. Reports indicate that the fashion industry contributes 8-10% of global carbon emissions, with dyeing processes accounting for at least 50% of these emissions. Synthetic and Azo dyes, known to be carcinogenic and endocrine disruptors, also cause skin issues. In contrast, natural dyes are predominantly derived from waste materials, resulting in a significantly lower carbon footprint—approximately 40-50% less. They prevent effluents from entering water bodies, reducing water treatment costs by up to 80%. Furthermore, natural dyes are non-toxic, hypoallergenic, renewable, and biodegradable, benefiting both the environment and rural farmers. Notably, the production of 1kg of natural indigo supports employment for 2 rural farmers and promotes a healthier ecosystem.
