The first natural dyes hub in the country has been officially opened to the public.
Housed in the Natural Craft Connection Enterprise (NCCE) in Purok Kamagong, Barangay Inicbulan, Bauan, the facility will produce and sell natural dyestuff and cater to the dyeing service requirements of the textile and allied industries such as handicrafts as it aims to spur growth of the Philippine natural dyes industry.
Natural dyes have been deeply rooted in the culture and tradition of the country. But because of the increasing demand and technology development, others resorted to synthetic dyes.
This establishment of hub is an effort to promote the use of natural dyes.
This project is under the collaboration of DOST-PTRI (project implementer), NCCE (private partner), and DOST-PCIEERD (funding agency). The NCCE is also a DOST-CALABARZON’s Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) beneficiary.
