Many indigo powders on the market are sold as natural products yet have an artificial make-up. In the newest DVD, Natural Dye Workshop IV: Beyond Mordants, Michel Garcia tests multiple indigo powders to investigate the authenticity of the sources. One of his missions is to continue a legacy of working honestly with the natural world.
Our 1-2-3 indigo kit follows Michel's simple recipe to make an indigo dye vat: 200 grams of natural indigo powder from organic farms in Tennessee, 400 grams of lime (calcium hydroxide) + additional 50g of lime to replenish vat (450g total), 600 grams of pure fructose, and instructions on how to start and maintain the vat.
The indigo powder in this kit comes from plants grown and processed by Stony Creek Colors. Extracted from Indigofera tinctoria and Persicaria tinctoria plant varieties, the powder has approximate 25-40% indigo content.
We had an overwhelming interest of indigo kit since the launch of the indigo workshop by Michel Garcia. We are out of the indigo from Tennessee but we will be getting it soon. Stay tuned!
