noon uses only natural dyes made from roots, bark, flowers, wood, biowaste and insects to achieve almost every color in the rainbow.
our mordants are non-toxic, and we do not use any chemicals, salts, carcinogens or heavy metals in our process.
we’ve been dyeing with plants on a commercial scale for almost 10 years

we love special projects such as hand-painting garments, collaborations on product development or even transforming manufacturing processes to natural materials.
