BenRan / The Craft Dyeing Handbook


We formulate the traditional natural dyeing technique by extracting colors and fragrance from Chinese herbs, kitchen wastes, trees trimmings and leaves–all can be collected in our daily life. Our concept–“using nature to create colors” is to built on the idea that every dyeing bath is a new journey and discovery of the life cycle of plants.
Our product is divided to three parts: (1)The Instruction Book, presenting the traditional Taiwanese dyeing technique. (2)The Dyeing material Color chips, including the material pages and the information of resources. (3)The cotton-made slipcover package can be used as the part of the DIY project as well.
