Each liquid natural dye is pre-extracted from a leaf, root, bark or other natural source. They combine easily and produce beautiful shades and may be thickened and used for printing, painting and other surface design applications.

This is an easy to use liquid natural dye that creates a soft brown. Cutch (Acacia catechu) is the rich reddish brown colour seen in Indian textiles. It is both a dyestuff and tanning agent and has been used in India since ancient times. Cutch has a very sweet aroma and takes a long simmer to yield rich brown. Alum mordants tend to turn Cutch yellow, so if you are seeking a deep chocolate shade, mordant withironand then dye with 20-30% cutch on the wof (weight of fibre) for a beautiful shade.
