Natural dyes can come from fruits, plants, and even food waste. They’re best at creating beautifully unique, natural earth tones.
Acid dyes, on the other hand, can create a wide range of replicable colors. They’re called “acid” dyes because household vinegar or citric acid is used to bond color to the fibers.
At Camellia Fiber Co., we use both natural and acid dyes. We like to think of them as different artistic mediums — like comparing oil pastels to watercolor. They’re both beautiful in their own right and achieve different color results.
