Zuma Sunset Brief
The Zuma Sunset Brief is dyed with cochineal, marigold, and Sumac + iron salts.
Extracting color from the females, Cochineal insects have been used to dye fabric, cosmetics, and food for over 600 years. Cochineal yields sensational fuchsias, scarlets and lavenders.
Marigolds have historically been used throughout the world for their medicinal, religious, and decorative properties. Marigold flowers yield dazzling yellows.
The Sumac in this style come from bark of the sumac tree. Sumac is high in tannin and reacts beautifully to the addition of iron salts.
