1-3 Days

Dating back to the 12th century, pigments from the genus Caesalpinia have been used as a deep red to brown dye.  Using a chrome mordant will produce purple shades and alum will produce red shades.  Brazilwood dye has been used for textile dyes, inks, paints, varnish tints, and wood stains.  This is the tree that gave Brazil its name from the Portuguese.

Our powder (think finely ground sawdust) is produced from the Caesalpinia sappan tree which is abundant in east Asia.

Note - The powder (25-50% WOF) should be simmered for 1-3 hours and then left to cool overnight (or longer) in order to extract the natural pigments.
