    I can’t praise these guys enough. They have been consistent with their excellent service, quality and customer care skills. All in all, a brilliant team who are trustworthy and professional. The DHL delivery option is excellent.

  2. wintermute2 (verified owner)

    I ordered some Red Sumatra dye and khetum extract, and was very satisfied. The dye gave brilliant results and the delivery was super-fast – it arrived the next day! Unlike certain other similar sites, communication and customer service here is excellent, so is highly recommended!

    Excellent company, loyal customer for many years. Always quick delivery and no errors. I started my dyeing process with the Malaysian dye and found excellent long-lasting vibrancy for the colour. I also tried Red Vein at the time and was not as impressed with the colour. Since then I have worked with a wide variety of colours and always been fun to work with, and good value for money. I’m so glad I found this company. I find dying my garments with these powders really provides long-lasting results and excellent vibrancy which I find personally helps with my well-being as many other options out there have poor durability and sometimes unwelcome difficulties of working with.

    I cant praise these guys enough. Seriously, whatever product you prefer, you get a service that really could not be improved upon. There is the personal touch too, staff are always ready to field questions, and are kind and supportive. Even in these Covid blighted days, they seem to really enjoy keeping us customers happy. Well done to the team, let’s hope we all make it through.

    Easy to order, quick dispatch and receipt. One day from Netherlands to England. Great product, does just what I want it to do. Grateful thanks.

  6. staceyeorr (verified owner)

    Very impressed with red borneo. I previously sampled a few and favoured green malay so stuck with that. Now keen to see if I have overlooked a few others as so surprised at how good it was.

  7. Tom (verified owner)

    Great quality product and next day shipping to UK, I’m always amazed at the speed of delivery!

  8. B. Wood

    Very happy with the product and professional customer service. Will be back again soon!

  9. togwen9 (verified owner)

    My first order since this excellent company left the UK! The Borneo red is as good as I remember, so too is the customer service which is truly second to none. It’s nice to be back!

  10. Laura McCallum

    Very happy with purchase and the customer service guys are easy to talk to. Consistent quality and vibrant products to enjoy, what more could you ask for!?

  11. graeme furness (verified owner)

    The best service you can imagine, excellent products and quick delivery every time.
    I’ve been with this company since before the name changed a few years ago and there has never been 1 mistake. Green Malay and red Borneo are my go to.
    Many thanks

  12. Beth (verified owner)

    Great company. Always very helpful and quick to respond. Delivery has had the odd problem but is still impressive considering.

  13. RUSSELL (verified owner)

    Service and quality of products is simply excellent. My fave is Sumatra White. That said, experience over many years of use has taught me there’s no such thing as ‘better’ or ‘worse’ quality, a lot has to do with your individual interpretation. Experiment to find your suitability to a particular type over time…2 It’s been a great for pleasure-recreation, which we all need from time to time!
    You can trust this company 100%. I’ve shopped with many, but never found anywhere better.

  14. Adam

    Outstanding service from this company, spot on as any good seller should be 🙂 Will be back again soon

  15. Toobler (verified owner)

    Can’t speak highly enough of these guys. Sumatra red has always been a favourite for me and I’ve never been let down at all. Top marks!

  16. Tony Brooks

    Really quick to get back to me when I had an issue with my order. Was impressed with the professionality which is more than I could say about some other stores I’ve shopped at recently 🙂

  17. mepcoshaheen (verified owner)

    I have been a loyal customer of these online sellers since 2016. Just saying that they are honest and reliable would be an understatement & would not do them justice. It is very rare that they will have a shipment or product error however if there is ever a shortfall their quality as first rate internet merchants truly shine as they set about rectifying any complaints for which they are willing to bend over backwards. It has always been a pleasure doing business with them.

  18. daviddutch100 (verified owner)

    Stem and vein came last week. I under-estimated this. Very good 🙂 , great dye.

  19. daviddutch100 (verified owner)

    Had 2 orders come last 7 days. Premium green and premium white indo. Both are great. Highly recommend these guys. The staff who deal with messages and contacts always hits you back straight away if you need any help.
    Also received 2 free samples. Thanks troops.
    Spot on 🙂

  20. Karen (verified owner)

    Ordered red dye and just received my package it was sent very quickly into the UK and the only reason I had to wait was issues with the time of delivery and not being home or courier being late so eventually got from a service point which was easy enough. So just saw there was a sample added also which was great as I’ve never tried before and unsure which colour/kind of dye was for me. Not tried yet but leaving this first review as company has been good so far, quick email replies about any questions I had, good simple packaging and so far been much easier than I thought it would be. would defo recommend.

  21. Cameron (verified owner)

    Absolutely fantastic communication, packaging and promptness. The quality of these strains, especially the green Malay, is easily up there with the best of the best. I’d certainly advise you try this one in particular.

    I would definitely recommend, and will be making many more orders in the future!

  22. paauggie (verified owner)

    NaturalDye is the most amazing company I’ve ever dealt with. I had the good fortune to come across them years ago when they were based in the U.K and I’ve been ordering from them ever since. They have always dispatched every order on time, and the quality of every strain has been amazing.
    I can’t recommend them highly enough.A++++

  23. Pete

    Another super quick delivery. Consistently good products thanks to all the team

  27. daviddutch100 (verified owner)

    Just recieved my new order again. Tried BORNEO ANAK this time and i think this is my new favourite. And i got my free sample of SUMATRA WHITE. Thank you.

    Will try extract next time.

  28. Cammy (verified owner)

    Excellent service, always replies to any questions regarding your dyeing, delivery is on point. Fantastic company… Green Malaysia always provides a deep, vibrant and noticeable hue.

    Definitely recommend

  29. Dutchy (verified owner)

    Ordered 50g red thai, wasnt dissapointed. Paid airmail and it was only 2 days delivery !! from Holland to Scotland, which is excellent.

    Also the khetum was good quality, and I received my 10 g sample of borneo white too. I prefer reds or extracts, but green and white as a freebie? I cant complain suppose lol!!

    Cheers guys. I Will be back again soon 🙂

  30. Andrew (verified owner)

    I have purchased Khetum from numerous sellers over the past 6 years or so but have relied totally on Natural Dye for, well… I think it must be over a year now. They have never ever let me down. The quality of their Khetum product is of a very high standard indeed. Packaging is perfectly adequate. I’ve always used the DHL express delivery service which has been extremely reliable. Customer relations and communications are also excellent, friendly and polite which is a very important asset. I cannot really comment on how competitive the pricing is in this current climate as (as above) Natural Dye are the only seller I currently use. But thats because there’s no reason I need to go elsewhere. However I’m pretty sure the pricing is fair.

    It’s easy to comment on colours of individual Khetum strains but much really depends on personal preference. I myself have always really liked the Green Malay it is an excellent, consistent ‘middle of the colour spectrum’ strain. Most recently I’ve also developed a soft spot for the Wildcraft.

    I have tried a few of the other strains including Red Borneo, Anak Borneo, Wildcraft’ and the premium Green (similar to the green Malay) all of which have their own unique characteristics and have all been of a very high quality.

    If you know what your looking for then…. I’m confident you won’t be disappointed. 🙂

  34. daviddutch100 (verified owner)

    I got the premium white indo, red thai and the new anak which Im very happy with.

    Although it was a day late delivered i got a free €5 off voucher for next time so thanks. But product is top notch from these troops so don’t hesitate to purchase. This is my no.1 place for Khetum

    Cheers troops!

  35. thefamilyoneill (verified owner)

    NaturalDye is by far the best communicating company for all my queries about Natural Dye products, delivery from mainland Europe and guiding me in safe, speedy delivery.

    I’ve found the products to 5 stars, with our favourite dying colours being the Green Malay, White Sumatra (light green) and impressed with the Red colours supplied recently as a sample.

    Top class company who provide deliveries faster than UK companies have done in the past. 24 hour delivery from Europe is crazy, but it arrived before some post arrived from within the UK, posted same time. So big thumbs up for the service and communication! Thank You!

  36. whiteshark1103 (verified owner)

    Order only took 2 days to get to uk, excellent service. Been a while since I last had Khetum, so happy to have found a reliable source again as it helps me a lot. I went for the red Borneo which has always been a favourite of mine and the quality of the khetum was very good. On par or better that what i used to be able to get. Thank you so much!

  37. andyn6699 (verified owner)

    Great Communication

  38. daviddutch100 (verified owner)

    Once again i need to mention the quick shipping to Scotland and packaging was great ! Will defos be back. Keep up the good work. Got a few of my friends and family interested too now.

    Amazing company to order from, always great at getting orders on time. I personally think the white sumatra dye works great!

  44. Barry Pickford

    Best company I’ve dealt with to date. Quality is remarkable every time and a side by side analysis of the different varieties show true variation and not “same product, different label”

    Fantastic product!
    Friendly team!

  45. Valentina (verified owner)

    The most an incredible, professional, sufficient and an amazing people I have ever dealt with. Great product. The most trustworthy company.

  47. Mo

    Green malay is my firm favourite. White Sumatra is good too..Borneo white isn’t to my liking.

  48. Pete

    I just love the vibrancy of Green Malaysian Khetum! My favourite everytime 🙂

  49. John (verified owner)

    Takkra is poor. I enjoy working with Malay best, followed by Borneo Red. Riau is mild, Borneo white and Sumatra White are good too.
