Colori Naturali

Colori Naturali

Colori Naturali is an Italian hand-dying workshop based on Abruzzo, which was created by some color, yarns, and local tradition lovers. 

These friends decided to gather their experiences in different disciplines such as Botanics, sociology, and history of photography. The vast knowledge of their environment and the artisan processes are their common factor to create high-quality dyes without using harmful products.

Colori Naturali is very careful in the selection of high-quality threads to apply the traditional dying techniques. Because of that, they only use natural dyes from wild plants that they gather from the surrounding areas, if possible. 

The natural dying process has always been the pride of Abruzzo’s textile arts. But Colori Naturali does not feed the nostalgia. They only want to “give a step back to advance even further”. They recover the capacity to appreciate what nature has to offer from the master dyers so they can transform it through natural, slow, and thorough techniques. Thanks to the contemporaneous techniques and scientific advances they obtain unique, deep, and vibrant colors while being respectful of the environment. They firmly believe that the future of humankind lies in the balanced relationship among human beings, animals, and the environment.

In Colori Naturali they design each thread and color bearing in mind both the producer and the knitter. That way you will be able to live their creations as a sensorial experience. With their threads, nature will always be by your side.
