The intense indigo blue is extracted from the leaves of the indigo plant. The indogofera family contains 250 different varieties worldwide, growing in various climates. Back in the day, woad was used a lot in Europe, it used to be a necessary ingredient for a whopping 90 percent of natural colours. Woad lost its appeal when the tropical indigo was discovered, which turned out to be far more potent. What sets indigo apart is the magic of its shift in colour. When the substance is released from the vat, it is yellow/green. But as it reacts with oxygen, it turns into the gorgeous blue colour we all know and love.
