Indigo bearing plantsare the world's best source of natural, true, colourfast blue. A magical dyestuff that has been used around the world as a dye since pre-historic times, the culture and wonder that surrounds this plant is immense.
Indigo is not soluble in water, and to dye with it you must create a "living" vat, which is achieved through a sort of fermentation process.
This listing is for pure, powdered indigo extract made from the indigofera tinctoria plant, which will not dye without additives. We offer a kit which includes the three ingredients to create a vat, along with comprehensive instructions, or you can find the additional ingredients here.
