φhillacolor products are made from water of the local water supply and natural sources, leaves, roots, berries, bark, flowers and spices. We use vegetable sources of no protected plants, from local fields and forests collected in different seasons and other traditional dye plants from certified and qualitied supplies.
The project wants to develop as much as possible local dye plants, especially wild plants, for supporting a more sustainable cycle of production. The cultivation of local raw materials reduces consumptions and promote the local heritage.

We produce natural dyes for fabrics, our product are concentrated liquid dyes, pre-extracted from natural sources. After dilution into a water solution in the right percentage, they can be used for dyeing fibers, yarns, fabrics and garments.
They are prepared with 100% natural materials and they not contain any chemical substance.
Easy and fast to use, they are suitable for diyers and eco lovers, artisans and textile industries.
Compared to the most common natural dyestuff (raw dyestuff, pigments, powdered extracts), which require a long dyeing process to extract the color, strain the liquid and controlling the dyebath, our products are ready to use in order to save time and energy, and designed to easily manage the dyeing process, in order to reach a best color result.
Our goal it’s to let more people familiar to natural dyes although to support textile/dyeing artisans and industries to improve and speed up production.
