Welcome to Pomegranate Colours. Please allow lots of time for your ribbons to arrive by post.

About Us



Hi, I’m Rachel the person behind Pomegranate Colours.
Here I am at the beach five minutes down the road from where we live in Almunecar on La Costa Tropical in the South of Spain.
Lots of the colours of the ribbons come from natural dyestuffs which we quite literally have growing here in the countryside around the town. Up in the snowy Sierra Nevada we collect walnuts whilst in our garden we grow lots more plants.
Dyeing is a slow process, in tune with the seasons. The magic happens up on my roof terrace. In summer the sun does the work for me. In winter there are buckets of barks slowly releasing their colours over months.
We have very little rain and so when the clouds come we collect every drop.
I try to be as sustainable as possible by re-using water, composting dye plants at the end of the process and using the sun’s warmth as much as possible.
When you buy a ribbon I walk to the post office to send it.
I love the whole process of managing to get the colour from the plants. Often I’m surprised by a new shade or even a different colour. Seeing a piece of silk at the end always thrills me and when customers send me messages of how they love the colours and the ribbons, well that just makes me smile more.
