We Love to Make Plant Dyes - Here's the Ingredients We Use

At Muezart we believe in slow and hand-made. That's why we use 100% natural ingredients in our plant dyes. We specialize in eri silk, which is a protein fiber that works so well with natural dye fixatives. If you're a slow-made fan, then you will understand that all natural dyes will have color variants. This is exactly what gives each yarn or product that exquisite hand-made, one of a kind look.
