The wonder has disappeared. Everyone is locked behind their screens all day, and the world is slowly crumbling around them but no one sees. Everything has become superficial. Yet deep down we all yearn to fly.

There are basically two types of natural dyes Substantive (direct dyes) and Adjective (reactive dyes), classified by their chemical composition. I favor substantive dyes because the dye molecules are attracted by physical forces at the molecular level to the textile, meaning they don't need a mordant or chemical added to achieve permanent color. The amount of this attraction is known as "substantivity": the higher the substantivity the greater the attraction of the dye for the fiber.
