Additional information

Dyeing processes Fresh leaf dyes: The textile has been mordanted with alumina or iron salts. Freshly picked leaves are then filed. The fabric is folded, rolled on a stick and tied very very tight before steaming.
Mordanting process: Mordanting is a preliminary and almost unavoidable step in most vegetable dyes. It consists in giving a bath of metallic salts to the fabric whose function is to create a bridge between the fibers and the dyes and to fix the color permanently. Sometimes organic acids are added to this bath (cream of tartar, oxalic acid, vinegar, citric acid). Cellulosic fibers need a bath of tannin to bond the metallic salts to the textile. At the workplace, following strict ecological principles, we use only aluminum, iron, and some titanium oxalate without rejecting waste. Both metallic salts and tannin are classified as mordant.
