Announcement   In the natural dyeing process the results we obtain are sometimes not what we expect,
this because the materials we use are provided by nature. We have studied the dyeing process and tried to obtain the same color twice with the same process but can´t. The dyeing process is affected not only by the dyes but also by the water we use, if the water comes from the rain, from the faucet or from a river. Oaxacan dyers say that the moon cycles also have an effect on the color obtained. The material where the dye is prepare also yields different colors. More importantly the materials we use to dye can be difffent because each plant is diferent depending on where it was grown.

Another thing to keep in mind when talking of natural dyes is that normally a dyed fabric
doesn't dye evenly, the dye will penetrate diferently each fiber of the fabric and the color
will vary because of this. This effect gives the fabric a unique and authentic look. When we combine two dyes to obtain other colors, the dyes again will take each diferent paths on the fabric, when the paths cross, overlap or divide the fabric will yield diferent beautiful colors.
