Color Off is an officinal coloreria located in Ostrense. It is a start-up project born after months of studies and research from the idea of the applicant (she is a molecular biologist). Within one hectare of land located among the hills of the Marche Apennine, Sandra grows and processes dye plants in order to extract organic coloring and to perform dyes on natural fibers. Cultivations respect the principles of environmental sustainability and they have low environmental impact. She organizes classes and workshops of natural dyeing within her farm, a real lab, but also on other locations on request.
This start-up of natural coloring is the answer to the problems caused by synthetic dyes, pollution and allergies: this is the idea of Sandra Quarantini. Her color is yellow and she is specialized in the cultivation of reseda luteola from which she obtains a very bright yellow, which can be sold to clients as a plant or as a colorant. Her activity is addressed to weavers, tailors ad creatives, but many requests are coming from privates as well i.e. to dye newborn’s layettes and she will soon open an e-commerce because many requests arrive from abroad.
The project respects the environment and promotes new and sustainable lifestyles and consumption models.
