Tara powder is a vegetable tannin of the pyrogallic type and is produced from the pods of a stocky shrub or small tree, the Tara or Cesalpinia Spinosa.

 

The fruits are 43-51 percent tannin.  The plant is cultivated in Peru and North Africa.  It is used for producing a high grade of leather as it changes the color only slightly.  The fruits are also used for ink and black dye.

 

Use Tara at 10% WOF for improving light and wash fastness.

Packed in a resealable bag of 100 grams (3.5 oz).
