Botanical Extract Dyes are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals.Today natural sources of dyes are used by artisans and crafters. Botanical Extract Dyes are desirable mainly because of the quality of color that can be created with them. Dyes extracted from plants contain many different pigments, and thus are not the "pure" forms of pigment used in today's chemical dyes. These impurities create rich and sometimes unexpected color, that can never be duplicated. For many the process of extracting the dyes from their natural sources connects them to their work, and gives them control over each step of creation.

Creating and using Botanical Extract Dyes is a wonderful way to gain an understanding of the biology and the chemistry at work in the plants around us.There are many methods used to extract dyes from plants and use them to color fibers.

Sources of Botanical Extract Dyes are everywhere. Dyes can be extracted from roots, foliage, nuts, berries and flowers. Until the mid-19th century plants were the primary source of dye. The process of natural dyeing became obsolete with the discovery that dye pigments could be produced through modern chemistry. Dyes produced by chemical means are more easily transferred to fibers, do not require as much time in preparation, and stand up better to repeated washing and exposure to sunlight.

So Botanical Extract Dyes is useful for us.Normal daily life, if you can, we can try to make more use of some of the Botanical Extract Dyes.
