Ebony is grown near people’s house. Most people used ebony fruit for traditional medicine to get out worm from human body in the old age. Otherwise, weaver used ebony fruit to dye cloth for their black uniform. We also reproduce the natural dye of ebony fruit on yarn and cloth. We grind ebony fruit and mixed with black mud to get dark brown or black. It depends on the amount of mud and ebony that we mix with together. We also only use ebony fruit to get light or dark grey according to amount of the grinding ebony fruit.
