Indigo Dye Kit + Good Tee Unisex
THIS BRAND SUPPORTS THESE CAUSES
AND HAS THESE VALUES
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.
A t-shirt in any size you need. Included are the ingredients to dye around 3- 4 t-shirts.
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 3-4 t-shirts to a medium blue, and probably more, and darker if you wish.
- indigofera tinctoria powder, extracted from the plant, pickling lime (calx), and fructose sugar.
The kit also includes comprehensive instructions on how to create and use the vat.
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.
When you choose The Good Tee for your organic cotton apparel and promotional goods you contribute to the health of our air, earth, and oceans, while helping people like our farmers prosper.
