Plant dyeing is a traditional dyeing technology that has been inherited for thousands of years in China. The clothes dyed by the plant dyeing technology have rich and bright colors, and are green and beneficial to human health. Under the background of the “double carbon” goal and the continuous improvement of people’s living level, plant dyeing has become an important development direction of the ecological garment with its own unique advantages. Infants and young children have very delicate skin and weak resistance to illness, and their clothes are paid more attention to health. Thereby, the combination of plant dyeing with children’s clothing is a win-win situation for both market consumption and cultural development. Today’s digital media technology has the advantages of fast spread speed and high public acceptance. In this paper, it was discussed that plant dyed children’s clothing can be sold through online channels in the aid of media digital technology. At the same time, plant dyeing culture can be introduced in the selling advertising space, so that consumers can understand the traditional culture of plant dyeing by purchasing and wearing the green plant dyed clothes. Therefore, more opportunities for the promotion, inheritance and development of traditional plant dyeing art in china can be created.
