Ploughboy Organics founder and Chairman of the Board, Suzanne DeVall, has created a break-through technology which transforms the tobacco plant into a renewable source of dyes and fibers for the apparel and home goods industries with the introduction of Avani Dyes from the Earth and Onatah Fibers.
This discovery allows non-toxic dyeing to be done on a large-scale commercial level yielding beautiful and striking colors. The dye process is low water and low temperature, reducing the amount of time and energy required to dye fabric over other natural dye methods.
Fiber sourced from the tobacco stalk and once considered field waste is now transformed into a spinnable antimicrobial material which blends beautifully and naturally with traditional organic fibers.
Ploughboy Organicsâ€™ mission and commitment is to sustainable agricultural practices and responsible manufacturing process from the field to the finished product.
