COLOUR BOARD

Talking about colours interests everyone

The traditional colours of my craft are Indigo, dark brown and tints of white which indicates three major Hindu Gods which are Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. These are most commonly available natural dye.

Do you know how these colours are made?

Let me tell you

Blue is obtained from Indigo

Orange and red are obtained from henna

Lilac and mauve from logwood

Black is created by burning iron in molasses and cochineal from insects
