Historically, madder is one of the oldest natural dyes. It has been grown since 1500 BC in Central Asia and the Middle East. The dye produces a reddish color that ranges from peach to salmon and bright red. This crepe de chine silk measuring 8”x54” was salmon after the dye process, it changed to a unique purple/grey as it reacted with the plant tannins in the steaming process and features eco prints of eucalyptus and rose leaves.
