Best Answer

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 didn't Greece women wear togas?

They never did. First of all a toga was a male garment. It was only worn by Roman men who were citizens. The Greeks did not wear togas. Roman women wore a stola and palla. The Greeks used a garment called a chiton for both men and women.
