- Commercial alum is today produced from the chemical processing of alum schists, alunite, bauxite or clays.
- Using a plant mordant avoids these industrial methods, and gives natural dyes that are 100% from plants.
- A plant mordant can replace alum in conventional natural dye recipes and can create some original colors, such as a beautiful blue from logwood.
- Using a plant mordant is quicker than alum and saves energy.
