Project Details


From everywhere! Onion is grown universally across the globe but has only recently begun to be recognized as a dye for textiles.

Adiv literally scrapes the bottom of the barrel to collect dried onion skins from vegetable vendors across Mumbai

Onion skins give a pleasing light yellow and a dark mossy green on a variety of textiles

As per Ayurveda, onion normalizes vata and increases kapha and pitta. Hence it is used in diseases which occur due to vitiation of vata.

It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and reduces pain. Ayurvedic texts recommend its use in sciatica, arthritis and other diseases which involve bones, joints and peripheral nervous system.
