Summer Yellows – Natural Colour – A Walk Through Our Yellows

by - Thursday, June 23, 2022


Once you begin to look for yellows — you find them everywhere. They can be warm and rich like marigold, or bright and strong like weld. Some of our favourite tannins (pomegranate and myrobalan) give yellows. They combine beautifully with other dyes - especially with a light dip in indigo.

We've found a host of golds, creams, and bright as a daisy shades to share with you. Come celebrate a summer of yellows.

Learn all about using natural dyes in the in-depth workshop taught by Charllotte and Sophena Kwon in their workshop The Natural Dye Workshop for the Maiwa School of Textiles.

For a thorough introduction to natural dyes including procedures, mordants, and recipes, see our "Maiwa Guide to Natural Dyes" at
