Artificial Indigo.

Manufacturer and builder 11, 1881

It may interest our readers to know that artificial indigo is now a commercial product, though the cost of its production on a large scale in competition with the natural dyestuff has thus far not been made possible, by reason of its greater cost. It is, nevertheless, an interesting fact to notice that this product has been artificially produced; and it is safe to predict that the removal of economic difficulties that now exist in the ways of its cheap manufacture, is only a question of time, and that the manufacture of the natural dyestuff will speedily have to go the way of the madder culture.
