Good Health. Good Earth. Good Life.

Why do we choose botanical dyes over chemical dyes?

City Goats’ vision is to proactively address textile pollution in the fashion industry and to

bring the love and consciousness of ‘GOOD HEALTH. GOOD EARTH. GOOD LIFE.’ to children, people and nature. In textile processing, which includes dyeing and printing, more than 8000 toxic chemicals are involved. 72 of them are consistently found in waterways from this process, 30 of which are non-biodegradable. These highly toxic and mutagenic chemicals threaten our good health and good Earth. Chemical dyes have existed for only 146 years and are constructed from petroleum, whereas botanical dyes are dated back 5000 years ago. They demonstrate human collective wisdom across various ancient ways of knowing from Indigenous, Chinese and Indian cultures. The timeless systems of soaking and bathing textiles in medicinally rich herbs that retain anti-allergic and anti-microbial properties is well supported by today’s science. City Goats believes that through the healing power of herbs, we consciously move towards a slower, harmonious way of living that truly defines quality and happiness.
