If your items have the “Natural Dye” sticker on them, that means the fabric was hand-dyed by our artisans with plants native to Indonesia. All of our natural dyes we use derive from roots, barks, leaves, or wood from various plants according to the geographical positions of the artisans. With natural colorants, we only use natural fibers in our garments so that it may blend well together.
