Quebracho Rojo Dye Extract

SOURCE: Quebracho (Schinopsis quebracho-colorado) is a tree with very hard wood that grows in the Gran Chaco region of Argentina and Paraguay.

The word quebracho means axe breaker and it comes from the Spanish word ‘quebrar’ (to break) and ‘hacha’ (axe). It is quite slow growing, and therefore is harvested selectively from tree farms that participate in reforestation efforts. Quebracho can vary in colors from coral, warm red brown, to yellow and green, depending on species. It is notably called "the dye that keeps on giving," because of its vast options on color.
