Minecraft dyes and how to get them

Minecraft allows players to colorize items using dyes. You can customize your Minecraft world with a variety of dyes. You can get all these dyes in different ways. Some are found naturally in the world while others must be created by you.

A type of item that can be extracted from other naturally-generated items like flowers, squids and so on is dye. These natural items can then be used to create various dyes.
