The touch of our Organic Indigo Dye isn't easy to forget. With a 56.26% tint, a whopping number compared to the usual 20% of any other Indigo, our Indigofera Tinctoria dye claims anything it touches as its own.
The deep blues of our Organic Indigo Dye have a history spanning millennia. We’ve used ancestral knowledge to naturally extract this blue gold by soaking, fermenting, and oxidizing the Indigo leaves we grow on our farms.
The shades of Organic Indigo Dye
Organic Indigo Dye holds opposites within itself – from the palest turquoise to the darkest purple. The shade of blue depends on the quality and concentration of Indigo dye used, how the vat is made, and the number of dips.
The red and purple undertones of natural indigo dye are impossible to mimic synthetically. In fact, even after 100 years of being used, artificial dyers haven’t been able to concoct ‘patina’ – the lighter shades of blue that look like a piece of the sky.
Unleash creativity by dyeing with our Organic Indigo Dye
Dyeing with Organic Indigo Dye is on par with magic to first-timers because Indigo baths are nowhere near blue (more like olive-yellow if we’re being honest) and the fabric’s color isn’t blue like you expected when it comes out of the bath.
And then you watch oxygen doing its magic – turning your dyed fabric from yellow to green to blue. Get your Organic Indigo Dye today and let’s get you started!
From one dyer to another
Allowing nature to guide the process, dyeing with organic indigo dye unfolds organically. The resulting palette is a dance between dye quantity, water composition, dyebath pH, mordants, fabric type, weather, and your expertise. Mastery takes time and practice, but it's a journey worth embarking on to achieve the hues you desire.
Embrace the artistry of coloring with organic indigo dye. Instead of fixating on the outcome, relish the journey. Each stroke on fabric connects you to the Earth's beauty. Cherish imperfections that make each piece unique.
