11 May 2018: On May 6th, 2018, The Colours of Nature celebrated its 25th Birthday! We had a special lunch with birthday cake and dance performances for all of the staff. Three women distinguished guests of honour also joined in the festivities: Victoria Vijayakumar (Manager of Aranya Naturals), Ratna Krishnakumar (Founder of Aranya Naturals) and Jagada Rajappa (a Natural dye expert who has long worked with weavers across India). On this special anniversary of 25 years of existence, we were very happy to also celebrate that our new natural indigo fermentation dyeing facilities are functional. Funded by Levi Strauss & Co. this set up significantly increases our dyeing capacity as well as saves water due to its suitability to dyeing at fibre stage.
