How did Romans dye their togas?

Franary Answered First
The Romans were well aware of various fabric dyes. But, they DID NOT dye their togas. The toga was an off white woolen garment. Children, senators and the emperor could have a purple stripe along the edges, but that was all. The only variation of the toga's color was when a man was running for public office. He would then lighten and whiten his toga with powdered chalk as a symbol of his purity of intentions.

Why did Romans wear togas?

They wore togas because they were light and easy to move in. The more wealthy you were the more majestic and beautiful they were. Not because they invented them?
