I first came across woad while travelling through Germany. I wanted to visit somewhere where I could learn more about dyeing, and my research turned up the fact that I was in the neighbouring village to where this plant originally had its commercial birthplace. I was thrilled to find it everywhere, and bought some seeds, one of which eventually turned into a plant here at home. This was the original European blue dye plant before the silk road and indigo from India. At that time, the woad guilds banned indigo because it was taking away business with its stronger blue pigment. My woad vat has many of the same qualities as my indigo vat and the colour is produced the same way.
