Did you know that a handful of plants, roots and bark could create up to 70 distinct colours?
What’s more: The plant dyes penetrate right through to the core of the fibres, so don’t fade but retain their wonderful intense colours.
100% plant-based dyed
Various influences on the dyeing process lead to individual colours and shades. The lanolin content and the original colour of the wool – whether blonde or brown – as well as the outside temperature play an important role. Thus new shades of colours are created again and again, giving each carpet an individual character. A handful of plants, roots and bark are enough to create the 70 Lyk Carpet colours
Unlike synthetic colors naturals are never dull monotonous as always remain the primary colors of their recipe recognizable. The wool gets pre-sorted according to its natural colour, then carded and spun, so that only the high quality long fibres are processed. Spun wool of this quality is well suited for the process of natural dyeing. The fibres will not only be coated by the dyes but penetrated right through to the core. As a consequence Lyk Carpets are colour intensive and don’t fade.
Lyk Carpets are small miracles of nature. Their secret? The interaction between high quality raw materials and excellent manual handicraft. The result? Carpets made from pure, plant-based dyed highland wool – without a single drop of chemical agents that could interfere with the carpet quality.
