Indigo Production

Indigo Production

The SITCO had acquired a 5 acres piece of land from Forest department for the cultivation of Indigo in Sindh for the availability of raw material, for production and requirement of ajrak and to encourage use of natural dyes in production and refinement crafts. The indigo cultivated on the acquired land is harvested, the extraction is also processed. It is hoped that there will be substantial amount of dye available with SITCO soon for free distribution to the ajrak makers and the dyers.

With emphasis on indigo and other natural dyes, it has become necessary to train persons in adopting natural dyes and this process is to begin shortly.
