Natural Dye Exhibition and Workshop

Wed 11 Dec, 2019

Johor Bahru

Think City has launched the Natural Dye Exhibition at Galeri Tenun Johor in collaboration with Yayasan Warisan Johor, the Japan Foundation Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur Natural Dye, and Natural Indigo Lab Atelier to showcase the processes and findings of a five year research project by JFKL and KLND involving natural dye techniques in textile production. The exhibition aims to conserve heritage techniques but also to share knowledge in the hope that the craft and textile production communities can be acquainted with the toll of synthetic dyes on the environment, and return to natural dye techniques utilising plant based resources. The objective includes increasing public awareness on the issue, so that consumers may begin the demand for natural dyed fabrics.
