Concise Bible Dictionary:

This art must have been acquired early. When the Tabernacle was erected the rams’ skins were dyed red (Ex. 25:55And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood, (Exodus 25:5); Ex. 26:1414And thou shalt make a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering above of badgers' skins. (Exodus 26:14)). The tombs in Egypt show that the art was well understood there by the various colors yet visible. The word rendered “dyed attire” in Ezekiel 23:1515Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity: (Ezekiel 23:15) signifies head-bands, tiaras, turbans, of different colors. In Isaiah 63:1 The Lord Jesus is represented as coming from Edom and Bozrah with His garments dyed with the blood of His enemies, as one that treadeth in a wine-press is stained with the juice of the grape.
