Eco Friendly Dyeing

We at Herbal Fab , provide fabrics in two types of processed form.

Here you can select our different base fabrics and select upon below processing techniques for your custom dyeing/printing requirements.

  • GOTS Approved Natural Dyeing (Some also refer this as Natural dyeing,Herbal Dyeing)

    We have developed the expertise to dye/print with flowers,roots,fruits etc like turmeric, onion,myraballams,madder,kesu flowers,dhavadi flowers,natural indigo etc.

    This not only prevents water pollution due to replacement of petrochemical dyes with natural dyes,but also imparts medicinal value to cloth as many herbs used for dyeing are having high medicinal value.

    Not a newfound process, it was a common practice in ancient India. Historically done by hand and on small scale.

    We at Herbal fab are just trying to revive the age old dyeing practice followed by our ancestors.

  • GOTS low Impact Dyeing

    GOTS Low impact dyeing printing is the processing with low impact chemical dyes as suggested by the standard Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).GOTS is one of the strictest and well known standard for textile processing.
