Organic clothes by Nisos 1948

In Ancient Greek the main cloth used was wool. The wool was first soaked in hot water which would rinse off some of the grease. Dyeing of the wool was a very expensive process, therefore only done by affluent people. Only natural materials was used to produce the dye the organic clothes. For brown dye they used oak bark; for pink, roots of the herb madder; for yellow, stalks of weld; and for blue, dried wood leaves. After the dyeing the wool was spun into yarn using a large loom. We use the same natural dyeing tradition for all our fabrics.

Authentic luxury organic clothes

The premier luxury dye of the ancient world was “Porphyra” or Tyrian purple. This is a reddish-purple natural dye extracted from a particular species of sea snail. The preparation of the dye for clothes began in Spring, according to Aristoteles. It was very time-consuming and thousands of snails were required to produce just one gram of dye, making the final product worth it’s weight in gold.
