Our Colouring

Whether celebratory and joyous or subtle and understated, colour lies at the core of Delam. Traditional methods used by tribal artisans in Iran - who extract pigment from the madder root, walnut husks, ivy leaves and turmeric - are used to dye the cashmere yarns resulting in mesmerising non-uniform hues. It took Delam three years to translate and imitate the ancient method from rugs to ready-to- wear, and the result is resplendent. One shade has a spectrum of variations, meaning that every Delam piece is bespoke as a result, while due to the organic, non-chemical colouration process, each shade sits softly against every skin tone.
