  1. 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.

  2. Pete

    I just love the vibrancy of Green Malaysian Khetum! My favourite everytime ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Mo

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

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

  6. 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!

  7. Carl (verified owner)

  14. whiteshark1103 (verified owner)

    Always excellent service from naturaldye. Have been using khetum again over the last few months, after a long break, for therapeutic purposes. My orders always arrive in 2 days max. I generally go for red borneo with stem & vein which is always of the best quality, I don’t have to take much in one go to get desired relief. Never go elsewhere for my khetum, been a loyal customer for years and the quality has always been the best and consistent. 10/10 will always be back. Thank you!

  15. 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!

  16. 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 โ‚ฌ5 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!

  17. Andrew M

  19. Mike K (verified owner)

    Brilliant service. Super quick delivery and superb dye results. Will order again from these dudes.
    Many thanks.

  20. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. 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

  23. 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.

  24. Molly (verified owner)

    Always a pleasure to purchase and quality is spot on every time! Borneo is my favorite

  25. daviddutch100 (verified owner)

    Note previous missing shipment was replaced so thanks guys.

  27. 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++++

  28. 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!

  29. 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.

  30. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. daviddutch100 (verified owner)

    Stem and vein came last week. I under-estimated this. Very good ๐Ÿ™‚ , great dye.

  32. 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.

  33. 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 Iโ€™ve shopped at recently ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Toobler (verified owner)

    Canโ€™t speak highly enough of these guys. Sumatra red has always been a favourite for me and Iโ€™ve never been let down at all. Top marks!

  35. Adam

    Outstanding service from this company, spot on as any good seller should be ๐Ÿ™‚ Will be back again soon

  36. 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.

  37. Beth (verified owner)

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

  38. graeme furness (verified owner)

    The best service you can imagine, excellent products and quick delivery every time.
    Iโ€™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

  39. 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!?

  40. 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!

  41. Tom (verified owner)

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

  42. 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.

  43. mbradshaw2005 (verified owner)

    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.

  44. John (verified owner)

    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.

  45. Ben Breeg

    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.

  46. 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!

  47. timespirit3 (verified owner)

    I canโ€™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.

  48. Mark (verified owner)

    Always decent quality. The premium is really good and worth the extra money. Shipping is always next Day, can’t fault it. Top stuff!

  49. thelonehutch (verified owner)

    Very reliable, never had any issues. Good quality every time ๐Ÿ™‚ can’t go wrong with some Malaysian Green or some Anak dye๐Ÿ‘

  50. Roberts (verified owner)

    This latest Anak is great to work with, never had fresher material, thanks!

  51. christopherklincke101 (verified owner)

    Have been working with particular dye for quite a while now and itโ€™s always of the highest quality and produces fantastic results each time I use it.

  60. jonjones235 (verified owner)

    Found it to be really good quality and value + service was good too.

  61. cammyd6690 (verified owner)

    This company and all who work there are extremely efficient and very responsive to any needs anybody might have. The products are fantastic, replies are quick, queries responded to in such a timely manner. Regarding the product itself, each type of dying material is very good. Green Malay tends to be my favoured dye, however the Anak and Wildcraft are great too. Itยดs a fantastic site and I highly recommend using both their prdocuts and customer service. The owners clearly care about each and every client. Thumbs up.

  62. N Clark (verified owner)

    I was very impressed with the quality and service received.
    A big thank you from me๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

  63. John (verified owner)

    I appreciate the green and red strains in particular, however that preference will vary from person to person. More importantly, the quality and consistency of the dye is excellent across all origins and colours. Natural Dye is truly one of the best companies I’ve dealt with in any regard. Always fast to respond to queries and very helpful in general. Can’t recommend highly enough!

  64. daveconnett (verified owner)

    Been using these Guys for years and thoroughly recommend. The service is amazing and Next Day Delivery still applies to the UK. All the products are of the Highest Quality
    White is my Fav and so easy to work with.
    Especially recommended if this is your first attempt

  65. todundteufel (verified owner)

    Green Malay, already a classic among many users. By far the most easy color to work. Best Red Colorant is Red Thailand. Very deep tone…

  66. googsymartin (verified owner)

    Excellent product and customer service. All enquiries dealt with promptly and professionally. Canโ€™t recommend this company enough!

  67. philip (verified owner)

    Been ordering for years now and the service is always excellent… so 5/5 there but I thought I’d make mention of Riau, I prefer the green but the red is excellent too. I don’t notice any ‘lesser’ quality than Malay or borneo etc which are more well known.

  68. jason (verified owner)

    Excellent quality, vibrant natural colours and wonderful tones. Great customer service ๐Ÿ™‚
