We used all natural dyes to dye the clothes. We made them out of food scraps from our lunches. First, we put the food scraps in a pot over a hot plate with boiling water. We chose the ingredients based on which colors we were aiming for. Certain colors were hard to make because those hues are not found naturally in our enviroment. Sometimes to make the colors we needed, we had to mix dyes. This is how we got the brown color of our shorts. Making the dyes was an intricate process, but it was fun and more environmentally friendly than chemical dyes.
