Natural Dyes : In this quick video as part of our Amazing Natural Dyes series you can see Dao and our 2 teenage girls, Am and Wan with freshly gathered very rare wild flowers.
Today they are very excited because these wild flowers haven’t been seen for 3 or 4 years.
The wild flower is called “klingtar” and it produces wonderful natural dye colours including greens, pinks and greys. They’re normally discovered around the klongs which are small dams in the rice fields around our village. But we haven’t seen them for 2 or 3 years so this is quite an exciting day for everybody.
The leaves and the flowers are combined together in the natural dyes process and we have discovered them to be wonderfully colour fast colours for our Thai silks.
So if you would like to know more about our natural dye processes, maybe our Thai silks, our handmade silk scarves or even our Thai village lifestyles then please subscribe with us. We’d love to share with you and we appreciate your support.
