Sappan Wood natural dye powder, also known as eastern Brazilwood.

Latin name: Caesalpinia Sappan. The fine sawdust natural dye powder of sappan wood is a renewable and sustainnable natural dye.

From deep reds to purples and to oranges Sappan wood is not used often enough in my opinion, Ph is key (as in most red colouring dyes). Use a good mordanting as a base to improve light fastness.


Origin; India, renewable and sustainable source, organic.

Packed in a resealable bag from recycled materials.


See the blog for additional dye instructions.
