Christmas 2017 and New Year Opening Times

Posted on

If you’re wanting to get your items delivered to you before Christmas, please ensure that you place and pay for your order with enough time to allow for transit and any potential seasonal delays. Use the guide below to help you:

  • With our Next Working Day service we recommend ordering by Wednesday 20th December to allow for any potential delays in the network.
  • On the standard DHL Parcel service, we recommend placing your order by Monday 18th December, however orders placed on 19th December may still arrive before the weekend depending on your locality.

Whilst we endeavour to hand over parcels to the courier on time, there is a lot of additional volume in the network that can cause delays. Inclement weather at this time of year may also add to the time taken to get your item over to you, so always order as early as possible to avoid any disappointment.

We’ll be open right up to Friday 22nd December – any orders that are placed and paid for on this day will be dispatched on Wednesday 27th December when we re-open.

The store is also closed on Monday 1st Jan (New Years Day), so any orders placed from Friday 29th after 13:00 CET will be dispatched on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.

  • Should you have any further questions regarding our services or if you’d like to check our delivery schedule before ordering please get in touch with us using our on site contact form.

Have a great Xmas and a happy new year from all the team at Natural Dye!

About us

Posted on


We are a small company based in the Netherlands specializing in trading natural textile & fibre colorants. For those wishing to enjoy dyeing their own garments & fabrics from home, we provide a selection of natural and alternative plant based colors. You can use our products to create natural hues in suitable fabrics that have been prepared for dyeing, or by using textiles that are naturally absorbent.

We strive to obtain our natural dyes from carefully selected suppliers who ethically & sustainably source their raw materials.

Most natural dyes come from dye plants, for example, indigo, woad and brazilwood. Our range of fine plant based dye powder on its own creates wonderful earthy tones in fabrics They can also be combined with other natural dyes to create unique hues for your clothing or cotton yarns & threads. Don’t worry if you’re just beginning – we have a handy guides available on site to get you pointed in the right direction.

For dyeing wool, we recommend the use of a natural mordant such as Alum prior to starting the dyeing process. Using our products on wool and cotton based fabrics yields the best results. For dyeing garments such as t-shirts, we recommend thorough scouring before starting the dyeing process, to help remove any waxes and oils from the fibres which may prevent our dyes from binding effectively.

One of the best aspects of choosing our range of natural plant dye powders is that once used, the waste product is non-polluting, biodegradable and can be recycled on your compost heap.
