View Full Version : Indigo Powder

Where can I buy indigo powder for dyeing purposes? I'm looking for the natural plant extract (indigofera tinctoria) NOT chemical dye. I believe it's called 'tarum' in BM.

Most shops/ppl I ask have no idea what I'm asking. Any help is most appreciated! Pleasssssssssseeee..

Is it the same indigo for washing clothes?

For washing? That blue cube? Most ppl think of that but no, that's a chemical that makes white clothes appear whiter.. :)

I'm looking for the natural plant dye in powder form. It's used either for fabric dyeing, maybe even medicinal.
Maybe I can ask those Chinese Medicine shops if I knew what the Chinese term for it is?
