Indigo in France / Pastel Woad

Indigo in France / Pastel Woad


The Languedoc region (Albi and Toulouse) experienced a golden age during the late medieval and Renaissance periods, founded on the trade in pastel dye. Pastel is a plant, Isatis tinctoria, which produces an indelible blue dye, following an elaborate manufacturing process. Well known by the ancient Egyptians, the plant was already cultivated in the Lauragais region southeast of Toulouse by the 12th century, where the soil and climate were particularly suitable. Soon, there will be tours for the indigo lovers to the South of France to experience and see Pastel Woad. This house is located 1H15mns from Toulouse.
