From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    The art of dyeing is one of great antiquity, although no special
    mention is made of it in the Old Testament. The Hebrews probably
    learned it from the Egyptians (see Ex. 26:1; 28:5-8), who
    brought it to great perfection. In New Testament times Thyatira
    was famed for its dyers (Acts 16:14). (See COLOUR.)
