With our new range of 80% Bamboo / 20% Cashmere clothing about to be available – we have decided to use only natural dyes. (this is interesting in light of the project kilims..see next post). The problem with natural dyes is that to dye 1 kg of fabric, it costs more than twice as much as it costs with swiss dyes. However for the BANAVATA range, we think it is important to use the most ecological methods. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant around and extremely renewable … maybe the cashmere goats could eat it also. !
