Step 1:

Before you begin to dye your fabric it should be treated with mordant solution as this will help fix the colors. Some colors do not need mordants like shade made from onion skins, turmeric and tea. However, for other colors you can use natural mordants like vinegar, salt and alum.

Step 2:

Let’s say you want to dye your fabric yellow. This shade can be obtained from a variety of sources such as turmeric and rhubarb. Wash the turmeric root, slice it and place it in a large stainless steel vessel. You can use the powder if you want.

Step 3:

Pour water into the vessel and bring this to a boil. Simmer for an hour. Rinse your garment in cool water, wring out the excess. Remove the dye from the heat. Place the garment in the dye and rotate it with tongs to ensure an even color. Remove and rinse in cold water and hang out to dry.


Note: You can use coffee, tea, onion skin mashed to a pulp and strained and so on. So, go on and give it a try!
