Sappan Wood Dyed

Also known as Indian Redwood, this plant is an absolute powerhouse of colour and produces an almost chemical-leak level of bright pinky-violet that we love.

The plant itself is part of the legume family and the bark is not only used for fabric dyeing but also, in some parts of India and South East Asia, a kind of potent medicinal tea.

There are tales in historical texts of it producing a purple dye colour too  - but after years of trial and error we haven't unlocked this colour (yet!).
