Himalayan Rhubarb

Reum Emodi


Concentrated extract of the roots of Reum Emodi, known for its' Ayurvedic Properties. Easily soluble in water and extremely concentrated a little goes a long way.

Rhubarb loves cellulose fibres, and is a substantial natural dye that does not need a mordant to attach itself permanently to the fabric.

Rhubarb natural dye extract is also a great use as a mordant in itself, use as a first layer for further use with indigo or other natural dyes or use in eco printing.


1-10% WOF for medium to deep shades

Active dye component; Emodin (anthraquinone), chrysophanol, oxalic acids, tannins.

Natural dye extracts are a super economic way to use natural dyes. They are more economic to store, ship and use, try once and never look back!
