INDIGO DYE

Indigo dye is more than just a natural blue coloring agent derived from the leaves of the indigo plant, scientifically known as Indigofera tinctoria. It is a living legacy of ancient civilizations that used this dye to create vibrant blue textiles and artworks. The dyeing process is a marvel of nature and science: when the fabric is immersed in a dye bath, it initially appears yellow or green due to the water-soluble form of indigo. Upon exposure to oxygen, the indigo molecules undergo oxidation and turn insoluble, resulting in the characteristic deep blue color. Indigo dye has influenced cultures and economies across the world, shaping traditions, trade routes, and fashion trends throughout history.
