Before we discuss how to dye plain colours, best to check our page on natural fabrics to get a better idea of the type of fabrics available as well as or purchase a fabric swatch pack.
There are literally hundreds of natural fabrics in Bali that we can dye to almost any colour & very few available pre dyed. This means that in almost all cases we dye colours to order.
Below, we explain the process of handing over your colours using Pantone as a reference
For the following example, we choose “Indigo Blue” as our colour request.
We typed ‘Pantone Indigo Blue” into Google & found this.
We selected the Pantone code 5395U as below. Now all we would have to do is send a link with a screenshot. From that point, we are ready to dye your selected fabric/s
Once we have your selected colours, we dye in 2-meter sections, taking one week to process. Colours are then “fixed” to ensure no bleeding occurs. We are now ready to cut & sew your samples.
Production orders are dyed in 100 meter lots.
