BLUEREDYELLOW is a design and natural dye house to satisfy your need for comfortable, natural chemical free textiles. We get our organic cotton fabric from the Fessler USA mill in Deer Lake PA, and grow and harvest our dyes in Philadelphia PA. At this stage we collected our yellow (marigolds) locally on our south Philly plot along with our blue (indigo). In the spring we will be planting our own red (madder) in our new home at the Schuykilll Center Community Garden. While we tend and harvest our grown crops we ordered natural madder root from Monterey Bay Spice Company and our indigo from the direct importer Indigocrow to get us started. To mordant (set) our dyes we use only aluminum sulfate, or alum, which is traditionally used in pickling. Besides our textiles, we sell exhausted dye material in our Apothecary necklaces.
Please do not hesitate to ask us questions! We intend to be completely open about our process and the origins of our products. We believe that our customers have every right to know each step that goes into creating the product they have respectively invested in.
Initial seed funding for BlueRedYellow was provided by The Corzo Center for the Creative Economy. Of course we are grateful for all of our friends, family and investors for supporting this endeavor!
