Natural colors extracted from plants, animals, and minerals provided the first paints, fabric dyes, and made visible the personal voices of our ancestors. The colors of nature on clothe and the horticulture that support natural dyeing slow the creative process and provide a more holistic thinking, taking into consideration social, cultural, and environmental outcomes. 

Natural dyes' color, process, and practices have a particular aesthetic attraction and provide the opportunity for the beautification of everyday objects, garments, and domestic spaces. The application of natural dye colors embodied in constructed objects reflects both modern making and historic textile production.
