Tamil Nadu indigo cakes with a light dusting of white ash on some surfaces. The ash is sprinkled over the cake during the production to avoid the stickiness during drying. This white color will be formed as a layer on the cake after complete drying. The ash is usually rubbed off before dispatch, but these blocks still have a thin layer on some surfaces.
The blocks are approximately 60 mm by 55 mm and 35 mm high (2?” by 2?” by 1?”). They are quite brittle and soft and are not difficult to break if you are using them for dyeing.
The indigo blocks can be used for museum display, to dye in an indigo vat, or to draw with. For more information on indigo cakes, navigate left-hand menu to Indigo > Indigo cake.
