INDIGO- THE BLUE GOLD

Indigo, or indigotin, is a dyestuff originally extracted from the varieties of the indigo and woad plants. Indigo was known throughout the ancient world for its ability to color cotton/linen/silk fabrics a deep blue. These fabrics are prepared for printing through a natural bleaching process and printed using traditional natural dye recipes.
