Our natural indigo powder is an extract prepared from Indigofera varieties, a leguminous crop capable of improving farm soil health. Indigo has been a source of colorfast blues for centuries and produces shades ranging from pale sky blue, classic navy, deep ultramarine, to even black.
This batch of natural Indigo powder is approximately 25% indigotin, the famous blue compound indigo is known for, and 2-4% indirubin, the purple component for a richer, more vibrant dye. The powder goes into solution easily and produces a cleaner plant-based alternative for a vibrant blue.
Your purchase contributes to the revitalization of traceable plant-based dyes and helps to fight climate change. Our plants are grown by US farmers as a clean crop alternative and responsibly harvested by Stony Creek Colors. Our natural dyes are extracted at our owned facility in Springfield, Tennessee.
