Historic Colonial Charles Towne Landing
Dating back to 1722 in Colonial Charleston, South Carolina, Eliza Lucas Pinckney changed the agricultural landscape with the development of Indigo Blue Dye. It became one of the most influential cash crops. In cultivating and processing the dye it produced one-third the total value of SC colonial exports before the Revolutionary War. The significant impact on SC economy lasted for nearly 50 years. It left an indelible mark of rich color and historic pride. We are thrilled to partake in a small part of her legacy in representing this color in release of “Year of The Bee” 2022.
