History of Indigo

History of Indigo


The name Indigo comes from the Roman word, Indicum which means “a product of India.” This is somewhat of a misnomer since the plant is now grown across the continents including Asia and Central America. Another ancient Urdu or Hindi word for the dye is “Neel” (blue) from which the Arabic term for blue, Al-Neel is derived. The English word Aniline comes from the same Arabic source. Of these, Indigofera tinctoria, native to India, has the highest concentration of Indican that makes the deep dark blue dye possible. This dye is used to color denim jeans. Because of its virtues and bright history, the Indigo dye is making waves in the textile industries.

The dye is first mentioned in a written source for Western Europe in the ‘histories of Herodotus’ (around 450 B.C.) who described its use in the Mediterranean area.
