Indigo is a natural organic pigment of plant origin that has been used since prehistory for dyeing and painting. The chemical pigment of indigo is also found in woad. The pigment we sell is of plant origin (although indigo is most often synthesized). Indigo requires special procedures to use as paint, so be sure and research this before proceeding.
