Natural Indigo Dye Cake

Description
  • Botanical Name: Indigofera Tinctoria
    Other Names: Indigo Dye, True Indigo, Indigo Blue
    Part Used: Plant

    We produce eco-friendly Indigo Dye (natural), by extracting it from the plant “Indigofera Tinctoria”. We have mastered this ancient famed craft.

    The process of manufacturing indigo dyes includes the following steps:

    • The fully grown plant is cut and soaked in tanks of length 14ft and breadth 14ft depth 2 ½ feet.
    • After 18 hours of soaking, the green color of the leaves comes out of the leaves and lies mixed with water. This leaves-extract along with the water is led into another tank of similar dimensions and oxidized by agitating the green water by kicking with the legs.
    • This manual process continues for about 1 hour to one and a half hour, By then, the green leaf extract turns blue in color and thickens noticeably. This thick Gravy is transferred into a copper vessel and boiled at a high temperature for one hour. then it is poured into molds.

    One important fact has to be pointed out namely, no other substance except Indigo leaves are used. This 100% natural dye is safe for the skin and good for physical and mental health. The natural blue color is said to have a calming effect on the mind of the wearer. The leaves are used to prepare hair dye and hair oil.
