What’s Geothermal Dyeing?

The only one technique of dyeing in the world, using geothermal steam directly to products.

The steam contains perfect balance of hydrogen sulfide with no impurities, which takes some colors away to make wonderful gradation.

If you tried dyeing with other steam, the materials that are dyed would get damaged, or get dust from the steam.  

That’s why this is the only place you can try this dyeing.

The most fascinating thing is the wonderful gradation. The gradation can not be created by any other ways if you really want such a vivid and well gradational ones.

The geothermal power plant itself is the fourth oldest geothermal power plant in the world, established in 1966.

It comes in the top 4 quality of steam in the world.
