Tara powder is a vegetable tannin of the pyrogallic type and is produced from the pods of a Peruvian plant, the Tara or Cesalpinia Spinosa. Tannin content of Tara powder is between 30-50%, used often in leather tanning. This is a tannin from the clear tannin group and does not add much of a colour to your fabric.
Use Tara at 10% WOF for improving light and wash fastness.
