This Project is the result of an ongoing research, aimed to create a variety of natural dyes extracted from different plant species. These pigments are derived from cultivation and green waste, providing an eco-friendly alternative to the synthetic colourants commonly used in the textile industry. Moreover, the plants used for these alternative dyes contribute to climate and sustainability efforts due to their inherent characteristics.Purple Red. Alkana tinctoria, Boraginaceae family.

( Colour red )   Rubia tinctorum is a perennial plant species belonging to the family Rubiaceae. It is mainly grown for its roots, that contain the red dye compound alizarin. The roots are harvested, dried, and then pulverized into a fine powder. The plant requires minimal inputs once established, thereby reducing the need for annual replanting and associated resource use. Additionally, the plant is often cultivated in rotation with other crops, which contributes to soil health and biodiversity. Its deep root system can improve soil structure, prevent erosion, and enhance water retention, thereby promoting overall ecosystem resilience. ( Colour Yellow )  Prangos ferulacea is a perennial herbaceous plant native to West Asia and the Mediterranean region. The plant is valued as a fodder crop due to its high nutritional content and palatability for livestock. It can be harvested multiple times throughout the growing season, providing a continuous source of fodder for livestock. It is well-adapted to semi-arid and arid conditions, making it suitable for cultivation in areas where other forage crops may struggle. Known for its resilience to drought and its ability to thrive in harsh environments, it grows best in areas with hot summers and mild winters. The leftover material can be utilized as a source of bio pigments. It contains pigments in aerial parts of the plant, including its stems, leaves, and flowers. The dyes extracted from Prangos ferulacea can yield a range of colors, including yellows,  greens, and browns. ( Colour Blue )  Indigofera tinctoria is a perennial shrub that has been cultivated for centuries for its leaves, which contain the blue dye indigo. It is well-suited to a variety of climates, including tropical and subtropical regions. Its deep root system helps to break up compacted soils and improve soil structure, while its nitrogen-fixing ability enhances soil fertility. By incorporating indigo into crop rotations, farmers can reduce reliance on synthetic fertilizers and promote sustainable agricultural practices. The plant is a low-maintenance crop that requires minimal inputs once established. It is relatively drought-tolerant and can survive with little irrigation, thus reducing strain on water resources in arid regions.











“Yellow to Blue” is a yarn wool dyed with two types of bio pigments, Indigofera tinctoria for the blue tone and Prangos ferulacea for the vibrant yellow hue. The green colours emerge from the combination of these pigments. The uneven colouration results in uniquely unpredictable patterns with seemingly random effects that will subtly evolve over time. The colours may vary due to the natural dyeing process, further enhancing the uniqueness of each pattern. 1.2. Repetitions result in uniquely random patterns.
