Symplocos is a bio-accumulator of aluminum. The leaves naturally store alum and so by harvesting the plant, drying and grinding the leaves, dyers can access an organic supply of this important mordant. Our symplocos is obtained through the Babali Foundation (plantmordant.org) a group dedicated to the preservation of the plant and cultural ecosystems.

See the Plant Mordant Project guide for Symplocos

For in-depth information on other natural dyes see our Guide to Natural Dyes available on naturaldyes.ca. Also available as a Printable PDF.

Currently the three largest sizes of natural dyes are priced at wholesale rates. Our rates reflect a growing discount as the size increases.
