    Good Youth Tee Indigo Dye Kit

    Looking for something fun, guilt-free and creative to do? We’ve got a really GOOD project for you. Introducing our Indigo dye kit, complete with a Good Tee, gives the beginner dyer a perfect introduction into the beauty and wonder of creating colour from nature and customizing your own unique t-shirt. The best part about this, is it’s sustainable, a guilt-free project, with minimal environmental impact.

    Indigo (indigofera tinctoria) species are the world's only source of natural, true, colourfast blue. A magical dyestuff that has been used around the world as a dye since pre-historic times, the culture and wonder that surrounds this plant is immense.

    Indigo cannot be dyed in the same way as other dyes, but must be used to create a "living" vat, which is achieved through a sort of fermentation process.


    Kit Contains:

    1. A t-shirt in any size you need. Included are the ingredients to dye around 2-3 medium adult t-shirts and rubber bands. The kit also includes comprehensive instructions on how to create and use the vat.
    2. This kit contains the pre-measured ingredients to create one organic fructose vat, with which you can dye quite a bit of fibre - how much a kit will dye depends on a few things, including how dark you want the blue to be, and what fibres you use. But it will dye a lot! As a general ballpark, you could expect to dye at least 2-3 t-shirts to a medium blue, and probably more, and darker if you wish.
    3. indigofera tinctoria powder , extracted from the plant, pickling lim e (calx), and fructose sugar .

    Please note that the dyed fibres in the photos are not included. They are there to show you what colours you can expect to achieve with the dye.


    Dye Contents:

    20g indigofera tinctoria powder, extracted from the plant, 40g pickling lime (calx), 60g fructose sugar.
