Growing Color is an annual symposium for those growing and interested in growing dye plants.
There is a growing demand for natural dyes for use in the textile, cosmetic, and food industries. This conference is for professionals in the farming, herb, and textile industries and for anyone interested in the fascinating history and potential of natural plant-based dyes. The symposium is hosted by The North Carolina Arboretum in conjunction with Local Cloth with the purpose of bringing awareness about issues and opportunities in plant dyes in order to encourage a sustainable natural dye industry in western North Carolina.
