Dyeing multch Answered

Does anyone know if Charcoal can be used to dye wood chips to make multch?  I'm wanting to see if there is a market to make my own multch and if I can make my own dye.  Anyone can help, please pass your ideas along.

Charcoal won't too well, but could you char the chips?

 I do prefer the bright looking red-dyed stuff.   How long will the dye with charcoal last before it fades?  The commercial stuff is supposed to look good for about a year and is not supposed to affect the plants when the dye washes out.
