Where to Change Armor Color

The first location where you can change the color of Link’s garb is at the Hateno Village to the far east on the world map. From Dueling Peaks Stable, follow the road to the north until you hit the fork, then continue to the east until you run right into the Hateno Village. Once you arrive at the village, the Kochi Dye Shop located around the middle of the village to the right of the main path.

How to Change Armor Color

Head inside and speak with Sayge to discuss your dye request. He will charge you 20 rupees and request that you have your own dye ingredients with you. The ingredients are anything in your materials inventory that contains the color you want to end up with. If you’re going to Link’s traditional green garb, you’ll need five items that have green in them. When it’s time to select the items, you will only be able to choose the items that match the necessary color.

If you change your mind and decide you want to go back to the default color of whatever gear you’re wearing, don’t worry. Simply head back to the dye shop and pay another 20 rupees to reverse the process. You won’t get back the original five items you used in the dye process, but you won’t have to give up any items to reverse the effect.
