Organic Indigofera Tinctoria (Indigo) – Powder


Organic Indigo (Indigofera tinctoria) is one of the oldest known dyes that was extensively used for dying textile. Derived from grinding leaves of the plant genre Indigofera, Indigo was a considered precious commodity and was referred to as ‘blue gold’. It doesn’t contain ammonia or PPD or other chemicals like most hair dyes. They are grown during September and October, and sometimes early November. The Indigo plants that have been well watered by the monsoon are ready for a third and final harvest. Organic Indigo powder is significantly different from its synthetic alternatives. To produce natural indigo powder, the leaves from the Indigo plant are soaked overnight which result in the water turning blue.
