Fabric dyeing dates back to primitive man, when ancient people would use various materials to stain everything from animal hides to cave walls.
Although it is unclear when fabric dyeing first began, the earliest evidence of fabric dyeing seems to date back to 1 CE, and Merriam-Webster lists before the 12th century as a benchmark. Fabric dyeing occurred around the world; from ancient China to archaeological findings showing it took place in Europe as well.
According to Merriam-Webster, dyeing is “to impart a new and often permanent color to, especially by impregnating with a dye.” The word “dye” is from Middle English dehe, from Old English deah, deag. Continue reading “Fabric Dyeing”

Fabric direct dyeing refers to dyes that may be placed directly on the fabric from an aqueous solution. They are a class of hot water dyes that are used with cellulose fibres.
Buying Direct Dyes
There are many different direct dyes available on the market, commonly sold as “all purpose dyes.” These dyes include Rit, Tintex Hot Water dye, and Dylon Multi-purpose Dye. All-purpose dyes are a mixture of two dyes: a direct dye and an acid dye. Acid dyes do not last in cellulose fibres, such as cotton, so when conducting fabric direct dyeing, avoid the all-purpose dyes and buy pure direct dyes so that they are longer-lasting.

Calico hails from India, specifically the city of Calicut, Kerala, India, after which the fabric is named. It is one of the oldest cottons in the world and is recognized for its durability.
Calico dates back to India, as far back as before the Common Era. As early as 1630, cotton calico prints were being exported to England where they were praised for their beautiful patterns. Originally dubbed as “calicuts,” the name calico evolved as first referring to Indian cottons with an equal weft and warp, then to any plain-weave cotton. Continue reading “Calico Fabric Origins”
