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
