Indigo Powder

We offer Indigo Powder. Indigo (indigofera tinctoria) is a deciduous shrub growing 1m - 2m high, flowering during July-September pollinated by insects in sub tropical regions and temperate areas of India and requires plenty of light. It is a frost tender plant of the tropics. A member of the legume family, fabaceae, the third largest family of flowering plants, indigofera tinctoria can biologically fix nitrogen, annually enriching the soil.

Indigofera tinctoria is native to india which is one of the oldest known centers of indigo dye production. The association of india with indigo is revealed in the greek word for the dye, indikon, meaning 'blue dye from india' or more literally 'indian substance'. The romans used the term indicum, which passed eventually into english as the word indigo.   the romans used indigo as a pigment for painting, for medicinal and cosmetic purposes. It was a luxury, however, being imported from india to the mediterranean by arab merchants.
