THE INDIGO FARM

We are proud to offer organic indigo pigment, grown, harvested and extracted in the foothills of Himalaya, India. The farmer Kiran Sandhu has a long history of indigo cultivation in her family. When buying indigo pigment directly from Kiran, we support a sustainable small scale business that gives work opportunities in rural areas. No intermediaries are involved the profit goes directly to the farmer.


Indigofera Tinctoria


The leaves are placed in pairs along the branches and these are harvested several times a year before the plant blooms. New cultivation is important after a couple of years when the color weakens. The plant thrives in hot and humid climates with many sun hours, but there are also varieties of indigo that can be grown in temperate zones. Harvesting and extracting the indigo from the leaves is a time- and labor-intensive process. Harvest can be done two or three times a year depending on climate.


You will find a short film from Uttrakand where Kinny explains the pigment extracting process;  www.youtube.com
