A dye is a substance which can (temporarily or permanently) alter the color of some other substance, typically fabric or human skin. Throughout history dyes have been made from a variety of different materials, including plants, minerals, and animal bits. Humanity has been using dyes for at least 37,000 years, and possibly longer.
