Natural dyes are derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood and other biological sources such as fungi. Depending on what dye material was locally available dictated the colours people were wearing around 5000 years ago. Through colonialism, the Global North is wearing more colours that were originally available to us. Nowadays, we can create a natural dye bath straight from vegetables, fruit and nuts straight from the supermarket. These jeans were dyed with avocado skins and nuts, which creates a lovely old pink. An Iron mordant is used to bite the colour into the fabric. It also changes the colour and gives the striped print.

Through use and washing, whites tend to yellow over time and no matter how careful you are, stains are bound to happen. If these stains are set Natural dyeing might give it a new life.
